There is a function called EditIn which will escape you out to a text editor (like vi). The editor opens with the contents of In[n] (where n is the argument to EditIn. You can make changes to the file. When you save the changes and quit, you return to the kernel and the expression evaluates. The type of text editor that is opened depends the setting for the environment variable EDITOR. If this is not set, it defaults to vi under Unix. This function, to the best of my knowledge, is not documented in Mathematica 3.0, but it was documented in Mathematica 2.2 in the User's Guide to the Unix Shell booklet. -- P.J.
