When I write a perl script or C program I use 'perl -d' or gdb respectively from inside vi. My first unix job was on the IBM RT, then AIX PS/2 1.0, then IBM RS6000. Using tty and the command line is important to me as a developer and as a sys admin it is vital since I guarantee I have ssh access to my machines and only resort to GUI (VPN and RDP or X) when there is absolutely no alternative.
