vilearn is an interactive vi tutorial comprised of 5 tutorials for the vi-impaired.
vilearn presents a menu of available tutorials for vi. There are five short tutorials, each a text file intended to be edited with vi.
The first, Basic Editing, covers the handful of commands required to both navigate all five tutorials and do basic editing.
The second tutorial, Moving Efficiently, covers all of the cursor positioning commands. These are the commands used later as arguments to editing commands.
Tutorial three, Cutting and Pasting, introduces the first compound commands, numbering, and copy buffers.
The Inserting Techniques tutorial continues the discussion of compound commands, while completing the list of insertion commands first discussed in tutorial one.
The final tutorial, Tricks and Timesavers, is less a tutorial than a description of common vi commands which don’t fit correctly into normal vi logic.
Each user edits their own copy of the tutorial, saved in the directory VILEARN, in the current directory.
