Thanks for the advice, folks!

Try pico.
There's no substitute for/comparison with emacs, though, IMHO. 
but just to be sure: you don't have to have ESS to use (x)emacs for 
editing R scripts.

Sven Garbade <garbade at psy.uni-muenchen.de>
ESS can be installed via rpm on Mandrake.

ESS is the real answer to your question, and anything else has got 
to be more difficult.

Nels Tomlinson <tomlinso at purdue.edu>
Installing ESS on debian was as simple as apt-get install ess.

Nedit - quick, easy, supports X (ie. mouse-click) pasting. 
I use Nedit - http://nedit.org/
For pasting bits in a Linux environment use gpm which is brilliant.

I have good luck just using gedit in RH 7.1&2.

Being similarly effected by emacs I find glimmer an OK text editor 
(linux version of textpad).
