One bad experience and you have never given anyone/what a chance to proof you wrong ;)
Perhaps take 10 seconds, fire up vim again and read the splash screen
which tells you
type :q<Enter> to exit
type :help<Enter> or <F1> for on-line help
~ type :help version7<Enter> for version info
how to exit vim again. I have to admit that I didn't crasp what to do
either the first time.
So let me tell you that
means you have to type the : to get the command line
and <Enter> means you have to press the return key.
The second option is using Ctrl-z to but vim into background (when
running it within bash).. Then it's killed automatically when you exit
I don't want to tell you that you have to use vim.
I want to show you that you don't have to be afraid when opening it
again (by accident)
There are some reasons why vim has been reader's choice 2005 (linux
I can't you tell much about emacs. I've chosen to learn vim because I
don't have to press that many Meta and Ctrl - keys (which would have
made my fingers hurt plenty) and because of the movement commands I
couldn't find in emacs.
If you are interested you can drop me an email and I can show you some
of the IDE features I've written for vim.
