Indeed the curve is slow, but gives you a prize later. I dont want to use another thing now. I installed the win version at my w2000 box at the office, nobody believes how fast is that via c3 with 128mb of ram, running a lot of free software under win  ;D

I really recommend O'Reilly's VI Pocket Reference.  It sure helps with the learning curve and even now that I've been using vi for about (gasp!) nine years it still comes in handy when I need to remember an obscure command.

I don't have the pocket reference, but I bought "Learning the vi editor" published by O'Reilly.
Had to order it from the UK, couldn't get my hands on it in any book-store in my city and it was more expensive to get one from a bookstore in Lisbon  ::)
It also covers Vim and seems to be a very complete manual.

BTW, if you want to see Vim doing some *really* awesome things, join the #vectorlinux channel and pick kidd's brain  ;D

... Now I use it because I love it.  :)

Me too. vim has a steep learning curve but once you have the basics it is so amazingly fast and powerful. I keep finding ways of doing stuff with fewer and fewer keystrokes.

Here's something useful: noremap <Leader>w gwip`^ Wraps the current paragraph and returns cursor to its prior position. The default behavior is that the cursor moves to the end of the paragraph, which is annoying.

hanumizzle's revision of the vim package is up (2vl58).
Everything is working for me.

Thanks again for this great package
