https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/vile/blob/master/f/vile.spec provides /usr/bin/vile. > i'd bet nvi is also available everywhere, though i haven't checked > that, since i don't use it. Yes, I checked https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/nvi/blob/master/f/nvi.spec and it provides /usr/bin/nvi, not .../vi. (I was unable to find a web-based equivalent of Debian's or Ubuntu's package search for Fedora.) > ubuntu provides elvis, but i think it's more of a toy at this point. Not at the above web site. And there was Stevie, vim's ancestor. That's not there either. -- Cheers, Ralph. https://plus.google.com/+RalphCorderoy -- nmh-workers https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/nmh-workers
