vi - A Full Screen Text Editor
(Page 1 of 4)

vi (pronounced “vee eye”) is a screen editor that dates back to the early days of Unix. It has been an improved several times and in fact, the version that runs on Linux is actually vim, which stands for vi improved. vi is an important editor for the system administrator to learn since not only is it is an extremely functional editor, it is available as a screen editor when a GUI or X Windows system is not running. Server systems that may not have a terminal directly attached and usually will not have an X Windows system running, vi will allow the administrator to edit configuration files, which are all text based. Describing all the capabilities of vi has filled complete books. This will be a very brief description of the minimum set of commands to use this editor to edit a text file.
