(cotinued from HERE) Almost as bad! I seem to remember something like that in the early days of MS-DOS Brilliant (and hilarious)! The thing is, it's not "features" the occasional file-tweaker needs, it's intuitive usage. At least now vi can use the cursor keys, I remember having to use the h j k l keys to move the edit cursor (had to look that up). I think one could get by if the cursor keys work, backspace and delete work, and typing anything inserts it straight in at the cursor (instead of having to enter "insert mode"), then Ctrl-Z asks you whether you want to save, save as, or quit without saving. Beyond that home, end, Ctrl-home, Ctrl-end would be nice, and a means to mark, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V.
