How can I learn to use the text editor, Jove ?

To learn Jove on Unix, you can use the Unix command teachjove which creates a file called "teach-jove" and starts Jove.
Jove will present the file on the screen, and you follow the instructions. To exit jove type
ctrl/X ctrl/C

Although the exercise tells you to use ctrl/X ctrl/S to save changes, we recommend the use of ctrl/X s instead as on at least some of our terminals typing ctrl/S will freeze the screen.
Similarly you may have trouble with using ctrl/S to do a search.
