Bram Moolenaar introduced a so-called clone of vi, called Vim, intended to overcome some of the shortcomings. Vim (version 5.3) now is supported on a large number of platforms, comes in a gui-version, has syntax highlighting for all civilized programming languages, and has a powerful built-in scripting language. Vim is freely available. Learn more about Vim and get information about download sites at the Vim home page www.vim.org
NEW: A tab-leaf setup editor, to edit your settings and mappings. See |setup.vim| for more information.
