  • 1. Tuffarsi in VIM
  • 2. Story The vi editor is available on almost all Unix systems. vi can be used from any type of terminal because it does not depend on arrow keys and function keys--it uses the standard alphabetic keys for commands. vi (pronounced "vee-eye") is short for "vi"sual editor. It displays a window into the file being edited that shows 24 lines of text. vi is a text editor, not a "what you see is what you get" word processor. vi lets you add, change, and delete text, but does not provide such formatting capabilities as centering lines or indenting paragraphs.
  • 3. WTF ● Opening and closing a file (vi file / :wq / ZZ / q!) ● VI Mode (Insert Mode | Command Mode) ● Moving around in a file (h j k l / ^ $ / gt / gf) ● Elementary editing ( Esc / i / a / o / O / yy / p) ● Copy & Cut & Paste (yy | D | p | P | ) ● Play with regexp ( edit, substitute, search ) ● Tips & Tricks
  • 4. Power is nothing without control ➔ On first problem try: $ man vim ➔ On second problem try: :help [keyword] ➔ Ok, now ? vi has many other commands and options not described here. The following resources can help you get started using the vi editor. VIMDOC: VIMFAQ: VIMTUTOR:
  • 5. Opening and closing a file You may use vi to open an already existing file by typing:      vi filename where "filename" is the name of the existing file. If the file is not in your current directory, you must use the full pathname. Or you may create a new file by typing vi newname where "newname" is the name you wish to give the new file. :help open
  • 6. Closing a file How to close a file in VIM ? ● :wq To save and quit ● :x idem, but nobody knows it ● ZZ Quick save & quit (useful using a strange lang keyboard) ● :q! To quit and witout save ● ZQ idem :help quit
  • 7. Modes vi has two modes: ➢ Command Mode the letters of the keyboard perform editing functions (like moving the cursor, deleting text, etc.). To enter command mode, press the escape <Esc> key. ➢ Insert Mode the letters you type form words and sentences. By default vi starts up in command mode.
  • 8. Keep on Moving The cursor is controlled with four keys: h, j, k, l. Key Cursor Movement ---------------------------------------- h left one space j down one line k up one line l right one space When you have gone as far as possible in one direction, the cursor stops moving and you hear a beep. For example, you cannot use l to move right and wrap around to the next line, you must use j to move down a line. Look at this ( for ways to move more quickly through a file. :help motion
