"It is not like the vi editor needs introducing to seasoned UNIX users. The vi editor, originally developed by Bill Joy of Sun Microsystems, is an endlessly extensible, easy-to-use light ASCII editor and the bane of the newbie existence.

Since I am such a huge fan of vi, I most certainly intend on following up on this column later on this year with more advanced vi topics."

"The first half of the column will overview editing, saving, yanking/putting and navigating a file within a vi session. The second half will be a step by step sample vi session to help get started."
