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-Windows. 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
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
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
meaning of CTRL-V.
