ReviewText: Most engineers and programmers have their favorite text editor to which they pledge undying loyalty. EMACS and VI are among the most widely used. The author has used both over the years, and currently uses VIM both at the workplace and home. When I brought home a new machine recently, VIM was one of the first five tools installed on the virgin machine.
Hint: If you use FileZilla to manage a website, make sure that you install VIM as the default text
editor via the FileZilla "Edit->Settings->File viewing/editing" dialog.
