Software News   Software News : Vim 7.0 for AmiCygnix released
   posted by CygnusEd on 23-Feb-2009 19:09:25 (1642 reads)
The text editor Vim 7.0 is now available on OS4-depot.

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing.
It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems.
Vim is often called a "programmer's editor," and so useful for programming that
many consider it an entire IDE. It's not just for programmers, though. Vim is
perfect for all kinds of text editing, from composing email to editing
configuration files.



This is the second release of Vim. This has changed compared to the first
alpha version:

* Working printer support.
* The execution of external commands is supported now. "Make" and other
command are working.
* Working localisation.
* External command "ctags" is now included. Vim does use this command to create
source file indexes.
* GTK2 user interface.
* Compiled with "huge" featureset. This adds right to left editing and much
more.

Is there any chance of a text-based vim that runs in the shell window? One of the things that I used to like about vi/vim was that it was so quick for simple edits and small changes.
