Nice to be in the majority for a change as a vi user. In PC world I was a BRIEF advocate and later CodeWright.

The last few times I have edited files have used gedit as I have forgotten how to use vi.
My memory is getting old.
If the gui crashed then would have to get use vim.

Everyone is telling about : vi

I too used/using vi editor. But i could'nt be an expert in vi.

Can anyone post commands inside vi [All usefull commands] / pls post a link at least. Will be helpful for all...

Eg:
1. vi filename
There are two modes which i know -> a. Interactive mode , b. Escape mode.
a. Interactive mode.
Used to edit the file. [Press i or a for getting into this mode.]
b. Escape mode.
Used to use commands inside vi editor. [Press escape button and enter : and then
enter the command]

2. Is there any way for "undo" in vi..??

3. Is there any way to compare two files at a time in vi ? [It is possible in emacs]

.. like this i have somany doubts..
