       evim - easy Vim, edit a file with Vim and setup for modeless editing

       evim [options] [file ..]

       eVim  starts Vim and sets options to make it behave like a modeless editor.  This is still
       Vim but used as a point-and-click editor.  This feels a lot like using Notepad on  MS-Win-
       dows.  eVim will always run in the GUI, to enable the use of menus and toolbar.

       Only to be used for people who really can't work with Vim in the normal way.  Editing will
       be much less efficient.

       eview is the same, but starts in read-only mode.  It works just like evim -R.

       See vim(1) for details about Vim, options, etc.

       The 'insertmode' option is set to be able to type text directly.
       Mappings are setup to make Copy and Paste work with  the  MS-Windows  keys.   CTRL-X  cuts
       text,  CTRL-C copies text and CTRL-V pastes text.  Use CTRL-Q to obtain the original mean-
       ing of CTRL-V.

       See vim(1).

		      The script loaded to initialize eVim.

       Also Known As "Vim for gumbies".  When using evim you are expected to take a handkerchief,
       make a knot in each corner and wear it on your head.


       Most  of  Vim  was  made  by  Bram  Moolenaar,  with  a	lot of help from others.  See the
       Help/Credits menu.
