Will try that but I guess it's good to bite the bullet and struggle with vi once in a while. As long as I have a reference, a second computer/browser, for commands I can squeak by.
*Shrug!* By the time I first encountered vi, I'd gotten past the stage of mastering obscure, counter-intuitive commands just for the challenge of it. The few times I actually had to use it at work, I only managed because of a cheat-sheet, and found it very uncomfortable to use. Later, here at home, I discovered Mork's Editor and never looked back.
Any time. I've no objections to people using (or even liking) vi, I just think that everybody should be aware that there are other options, so that they can find the one they like best.
Back at JPL, in the mid-'80s, there was an editor with both screen and line modes; I mastered the line mode partly Just Because and partly because there were a few things that were easier to do that way. Then, when I had to work from home, it turned out that the VAX I was phoning in to would only let me work in line mode because it wouldn't agree that my modem program was emulating a VT-100.
Please don't tell me I have to explain that one! -- users mailing list users@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To unsubscribe or change subscription options: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/users Guidelines: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines Have a question?
