vi is usually killer for a temp editor, but it works great even with  
features tiny.

Check out some other editors that would be simple enough for a temp  
system editor.

Nano, pico, ed, bunch of others.

Or just create your scripts with cat > blah << "EOF"

Then if you have errors use sed or perl to fix them!

Sincerely,
