How to restore the previous version of log file?
cn flag

I run my program on my college server and have to provide a log file to update the results of the program.

Accidently I submitted a program without updating the name of the log file and hence the older version of the log file is no longer accessible to me. But the results are important for me and hence I want to restore the previous version of the log file.

Is there any way to do restoration?

Which CLI text editor does not waste screen space?
jp flag

Vim has a non-removable status bar at the bottom. Nano has the same problem with its title bar. Surely there has to be an alternative for entering text in full-screen without any frills? I often jot down ideas in a full-screen terminal with large font size and a single line space becomes critical. For instance, my entire screen looks like below with Vim.

enter image description here

Using Ubuntu 21.04, GNOME 3.38.5 I am new to Linux. I have grown accustomed to windows opening in their last-used location.

Which terminal text editor uses GUI-like keyboard shortcuts?
cn flag

I seek an editor where Ctrl+C copies, Ctrl+X cuts, Ctrl+V pastes, Ctrl+Z undos, Ctrl+Y redos, F3 searches and F2 renames. When I click the left mouse button, the cursor should go there. All modes should be active at the same time (command and insert and ...).

Also Ctrl+W closes the current tab in tabbed interfaces, Alt+F4 closes the currently focused app, Ctrl+Tab tabs between guess what, tabs, Ctrl
