Using the MUF Program Editor

The built-in editor for writing MUF programs is the MUF Program Editor. Written with the constraints of the telnet interface in mind it is a form of text editor known as a line editor. If you've done enough building you have probably used another line editor, lsedit.

While the MUF Program Editor is a pain to use and there are alternate approaches, it is still worth-while to learn the basics of using the built-in editor. There will be times when the alternatives won't be available.

In the next section, we'll dive right in by writing our first version of the classic "Hello World" program.
