[REBOL] Re: vim again

From: maximo:meteorstudios at: 27-Nov-2003 10:47

ok I checked out vim last week, but I don't get it. why would you want to use vi style of cryptic text editing in the year 2003? is it just out of habit of using vi in the past? maybe its just the version of vim which installed itself, which just looked like a shell with vi loaded... did I miss out on something... there where no menue , no point and click features that I noticed... I work in ultra edit and man, I don't see how I could code faster (within a text editor)! it can even do advanced stuff like replace/all in a collection of files and record macros for that 34 keystroke procedure you have to apply to those 104 items of text ;-)... I'm just curious, really, I'm not saying any vi(m) user is wrong, just that I don't understand. thanks for any replies trying to explain :-) -MAx --- You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being part of the problem is much more fun.
