I talked about vim in the AROS thread and free software.. And now it seems like 6.2 is out!!
VIM is _THE_ editor, it totally rocks, and development started on Amiga! Get the Amiga version here. Also show your support for this excellent product, help poor people in Uganda. One way to do this is to buy the book Vi IMproved - Vim. VIM is also available for unix, linux, m$ os, and others.

Vim started on the Amiga?!

Cool, didn't know that one yet :) But alas, i'm not a vim user really...
However, i'll try out the Miggy version :)

Cheers

Seems like a missunderstanding from my side, wanted to do a quote and read it once more.

"Quite a long time ago, Vim development started on the Amiga. Although it's a really old system now, it is still supported (for as long as my system doesn't break down!)."

I read it as "vim development started on amiga", not "quite a long time ago", sorry.

ESC META ALT CTRL SHIFT?

That's a different editor you know.


In vi it's just :wq to save and exit (write and quit - so hard to remember)

Its not a question of being too lazy; there are just much, much, much better editors out there.

VIM is one of the best editors around. Expecially the graphical version, gvim, has EVERY feature a modern programmer's editor needs:

- syntax highlight (in more than 100 languages)
- folding
- diffs
- keyword completion
- indenting
- compiler integration
- unlimited undo
- macro recording
- powerful scripting
- multiview

And this runs also on a termial.

This may not be useful to the hobbyist, but it's very important for a PRO. In our company we mostly use VIM as editor, and we write a LOT of code :)

Sadly the Amiga port is a bit behind, since the graphical version is not supported and also the text version chokes a bit with the non standard amiga shell.

Bye,
Gabry

OK. I still hate it. I had to use it for a year in one job, and believe me, its one of the suckiest editors i've ever had the mispleasure of using.

You were right the first time. Vim development started on the amiga.

"1988 Vim 1.0 Vi IMitation on the Amiga
1991 Vim 1.14 First public release
1992 Vim 1.22 Port to Unix, renamed to Vi IMproved"

I've been using VIM for many years on my Linux system and it's still one of the best editors I have used so far.
