              02     $ ./configure

By default, the text editor is launched according EDITOR environment variable. (If none, vi text editor is launched.) To override it, (i.g. to have nano editor), just enter at command line:

              $ EDITOR=nano fblog -c blog_dir

Uncomment the line beginning by EDITOR and write the name of your preferred editor.
