1.) From a Plan 9 Rio rc prompt.

sam

Sam is a text editor. While the cursor is over the sam window, press the right button of your mouse and drag the cursor over the file name. Release the right mouse button once the cursor is over the file name. The cursor pointer will change to a square. Press the right button, while the square cursor is over the lower panel, to load the file in the lower panel.

  % sam /rc/bin/termrc.local

A few words about (w) writing the file, and how to (q) quit “sam”. Commands (sam -d) are typed in the upper panel, while edits are typed in the lower panel. Press the left mouse button to activate the upper panel, or the lower panel. Type a 'w' in the upper panel, then press the carriage return. This saves the file. Type a 'q' in the upper panel, then press the carriage return. This quits “sam”.

Sam uses it's own cut/paste buffer. Exchange it with Rio's cut/paste buffer by using the <rio> option in the middle button (2) menu of sam.

The following edit (% sam -d) will work from the VM console rc prompt, or from the upper sam panel.

  % mkdir samlearn
  % cd samlearn
  % cp /lib/ndb/local local2
  % sam -d local2
  -. local2

ed

Ed is a text editor, and similar to sam -d. Using the % sam -d examples from Sam, it's possible to use % ed. The mentioned examples are from a Drawterm Rio rc prompt.

  % cd samtest

  % ed local-1ed

abaco

You can use Abaco to browse the web1. (Abaco is available in a default Plan 9 system.) You'll need to have your IP configured and DNS working in order to browse the web. After that, you'll have to run “webfs” and then2 “abaco”. If you don't have a “/usr/$user/lib/webcookies” file, touch it once. (You may want to add “webfs” in your “$home/lib/profile” just before plumber and rio.)

  % touch /usr/$user/lib/webcookies
  % webfs
  % abaco

When abaco starts, you can go to a webpage by clicking “New” with the middle button of the mouse, typing the address in the row below the one with “Del Snarf Get …” (see the previous figure: it's the one where the current legacy address is), and pressing “[Enter]” on your keyboard. You can follow links by clicking on them, as is usual, with the left button (the shape of the cursor won't change, though).

1 An http URL. 2 Both commands are used on one line with a separator: “% webfs; abaco”. 3 Another way to run Abaco.
