Learning VIM gently Pdf
VI has been around for a long time. While there are many GUI text editors like gedit: vi and vim remain popular with system administrators as most of you must edit configuration files for example in /etc. It is a good tool for documentation as you will discover in this book. Also, you don’t need a graphical interface and may invoke vi or vim over a network using ssh or even the much-maligned telnet command and it is quite lightweight on your resources as well.
VIM is a worthy successor to VI – Unix’s ubiquitous text editor. VI has limited functionalities as compared to VIM and is limited to Linux/UNIX whereas VIM has been ported to almost all major Operating Systems like OS/2, all distributable of Linux etc. You can say VIM is a modern version of VI.
