At Last, An X-Based vi
My search for an X-based vi is over. For me, xvile fills the bill.
If you aren't a vi user, but you like to try a new editor once in a while, give this one a try. Don't expect it to be self- teaching, however: you'll need the book.
If you are already a vi user seeking to use your mouse for more than a paperweight, and if you won't be seriously upset at having to relearn a few of your keystroke sequences, take a look at xvile.
xvile source can be retrieved via anonymous ftp from sunsite.unc.edu in the file /pub/Linux/apps/editors/vi/vile-5.6.tar.gz Use a mirror of sunsite where possible.
A good book for learning vi is Learning the vi Editor, by Linda Lamb, published by O'Reilly & Associates, ISBN: 0-937175-67-6, 192 pages, $21.95
