I have been playing around with DosBox and MS Word 5.5 for DOS and thought the .rtf capability would be nice on a server. The latter would allow for flexibility and the ability to modify and build .rtf documents, which support bold and italic text.

However, since my servers do not have a GUI – DOSbox will not run. Is there a native Linux editor that will run from the CLI (GUI’less), which will support the functions of MS Word 5.5 for DOS?
