For many users, working in the UNIX environment means using vi, a full- screen text editor available on most UNIX systems. Even those who know vi often make use of only a small number of its features.

This handbook is a complete guide to text editing with vi. Quickly learn the basics of editing, cursor movement, and global search and replacement. Then take advantage of the more subtle power of vi. Extend your editing skills by learning to use ex, a powerful line editor, from within vi.

Topics covered include:

  • Basic editing
  • Moving around in a hurry
  • Beyond the basics
  • Greater power with ex
  • Global search and replacement
  • Customizing vi and ex
  • Command shortcuts

Also includes a pull-out quick-reference card.
