Well, I'm not good at vi. As a lazy guy (TM) I honestly prefer ee, as long as the cursor keys work. If they don't, well, I have a "vi keyboard reference" in my "extremely important documentation folder" - and yes, it is a real folder, not a directory. :-) So if everything fails, there's still vi and the content of /rescue to get you back working. Maybe this is because vi scared me when using WEGA (which is the GDR's equivalent of UNIX System III, run on the P8000 multi-user workstation). Well, we were all young, many many years in the distant past. :-) > ps: when bill j. dies and meets st. pete at the pearly > gate, pete'll say: "So what did you do--" And bill > will say, "I wrote vi." red-carpet is rolled out > :_) When Bill G. arrives at the pearly gate, ol' Pete won't ask him what he did do, instead send him to MICROS~1 C:\HELL.EXE with the advice to click on the devil to start the everlasting pain. :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
