Lots of programs look at the EDITOR environment variable when they
shell out to an editor. But this isn't really an XEmacs question.

For Exceed, you can configure this with the Xconfig program. (Look
for the Keyboard Input icon.) This isn't an XEmacs question either.
An XEmacs answer is that ESC works a bit like the Alt (or Meta) key.
For instance instead of M-? t (or Alt-? t) to read the XEmacs
tutorial, you can press and release the ESC key and type "? t".
