Using the VI Editor

Author: JT Smith

Onlamp.com's BSD basics section has a tutorial on using the VI editor. Here's how it starts: "Okay, I admit it. I like using the vi editor. In fact, I have fond memories of using vi when I
was teaching myself C++ while playing Peter Gabriel at full blast. I never became highly
proficient at C++, but I can still type and get vi's bell to go off in rhythm to any piece of
music. I sorta miss that bell when I'm using another editor."
