The command line tool used the environment variable SQLCMDEDITOR to determin the editor to launch when the :ed command is invoked. This is nice, but it would be better if it fell back to EDITOR if SQLCMDEDITOR was not implemented.

Thanks for writing in to Microsoft.

We have given this suggestion a lot of consideration. However, given the work that would be involved in implementing this suggestion, and triaging against our current set of deliverables, we do not think that we would be able to get to this in the near future.

However, we value your suggestions, and assure you that we would keep these ideas in mind, when we do revisit this feature in the future.

Thank you for your valuable feedback.
