(Before I started searching, I'd figure I'd ask here). I'm looking for something that can run vi, specifically - I assume busybox will allow that. Pulling / pushing conf files is a bit of a PITN. Any ideas?Thanks.

I just posted this in the "Beg Pandigital for the source code thread" but it seems appropriate here...

As one of the earlier comments in this thread mentioned, /system/bin/ifconfig is (or is at least based on) busybox.

On my PDN:$ ifconfig --helpBusyBox v1.13.1 (2009-03-03 13:55:28 CST) multi-call binary... Sure enough

# ln -s ifconfig cpln -s ifconfig cp# cpcpBusyBox v1.13.1 (2009-03-03 13:55:28 CST) multi-call binary
Copy SOURCE to DEST, or multiple SOURCE(s) to DIRECTORY
Options:-a Same as -dpR-d,-P Preserve links-H,-L Dereference all symlinks (default)-p Preserve file attributes if possible-f Force overwrite-i Prompt before overwrite-R,-r Recurse directories-l,-s Create (sym)links
# ln -s ifconfig busyboxln -s ifconfig busybox
# busyboxbusybox

Usage: busybox [function] [arguments]...or: function [arguments]...BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unixutilities into a single executable. Most people will create alink to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox will act like whatever it was invoked as!
