Installing Nano on an Intel Edison

I've started experimenting with an Intel Edison and the Sparkfun Starter Pack for Intel Edison.  Things have gotten off to a good start, but I missed the nano editor.  I couldn't install nano using opkg, but the following code will download the source code (using wget), compile it, and install it.

wget && tar xvf nano-2.4.1.tar.gz && cd nano-2.4.1 && ./configure && make && make install

As of June 2015, nano 2.4.1 is the latest version. Update the numbers in the line above for other versions. You can see what's available by browsing

I've been able to get C code working that reads from an I2C sensor. I'll post about that shortly.
