When editing files like
sudoers, I want to use emacs instead of nano. So I ran this command
sudo update-alternatives --config editor
And I selected emacs. The only issue is I like emacs in no window mode (the -nw flag) and I've aliased emacs as
emacs='emacs -nw' so that I can use no window mode in normal use, but I don't know how to get my default editor to be in no window mode.
In other words, I need to get the command
sudo visudo and similar commands that open up editors to open the file with
emacs -nw. How can I do this? I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.
