Pico text editor

Pico is a text editor for Unix computer systems, and is integrated with the Pine email client, designed by Office of Computing and Communications at the University of Washington.

Taken from the Pine FAQ at http://www.washington.edu/pine/faq/whatis -- "Pine's message composition editor is also available as a separate stand-alone program, called PICO. PICO is a very simple and easy-to-use text editor offering paragraph justification, cut/paste, and a spelling checker."

Pico is generally used by those who are new to UNIX, but many experienced users compose email with it as well.

The GNU project has a clone of Pico called Nano. Nano was developed because Pico's license is not considered to be a free software license.
