Favorite text editor? - BSD
**@ purgatori:**

Yes, I have used Evil during my time with Emacs. Its very nice, makes it quite Vim-ish. It's also what made me realize that I better stick with Vim.

But it shows how extendable Emacs is.

Another vim user here too.
Start vimtutor, estimated time to finish the tutorial "30 min", you spend 2hours on it... master it and at the end (like in all good games), it is just the beginning!
I wonder if I can get Qedit for HP-UX to run on FreeBSD?

Somewhat tangentially, this blog post talks about text editing principles for which the author credits Brian W. Kernighan for instilling a preference for a single line for a single sentence or concept.

This is supposed to make subsequent editing less cumbersome.
Yada yada yada...

I'm exactly like you br0...

I use everyday vim. But I think emacs -nw could be awesome too...

But I don't want to spend time to learn every binds...
I actually found emacs to be a bit simpler to learn then vim, but that might just be me.

They're usually referred to as "libraries."
I just discovered yui (y) and it's sort of like my old DOS favorite, "Qedit," from SemWare.
I'm still trying to figure out how it works. :D
