You should instal Vim if you want the old behaviour.
Indeed. After Nikos' post I reread the original. Jay, what you are describing is: When in insert mode, and pagedown is pressed, the letter the cursor is over is capitalized, and the editor is removed from insert mode, as an example. This is expected behavior if you are using /usr/bin/vi. > Keep in mind that nvi is a different program. Why don't you > install Vim? Indeed, if vim's behavior is desired, then it may be a good idea to install vim. I usually keep around an installation of editors/vim-lite for those rare occassions that I have managed to break my local Emacs installation beyond repair :-) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
