Hi Chris

(This particular question was answered earlier by members of the list)

Basically, the question was: "Is it possible to set the EDITOR variable in the environment the rancid user uses by configuring it in the rancid.conf file, and would this have the same effect as setting it in the ".cshrc" for the the rancid user."

Agreed that RANCID doesn't "use an editor" and that setting the EDITOR variable will have no effect whatsoever on the operation of RANCID.

Rancid doesn't use an "editor."  Can you clarify your question or
describe what you are trying to do in a different way?

Hi List

Is it possible to change the default editor rancid uses by setting it in
the rancid.conf file? How many places would it be possible to set the
rancid editor for rancid (assuming a standard linux operating system
like Debian or Ubuntu).
