IBM documentation for the new Vim

19 08 2008

Have no clue what the title is about? You need to do some serious reflection on your geekness.

Briefly, Vim is a successor of vi, in lower case, written in 1976 as a Linux editor. If you do any serious work in Linux, you really need to equip yourself with that tool.

This documentation by IBM is a thorough discussion of acquiring and using Vim, and the following list – a partial list – of platforms to which it has been ported:

  • Amiga
  • AIX
  • BSD
  • Cygwin
  • IBM OS/2®
  • Linux
  • Apple Mac OS and Mac OS X
  • Microsoft® MS-DOS®
  • Microsoft Windows® 95 though Windows Vista®
  • Microsoft Windows CE
  • OpenVMS

The references (IBM’s documentation is very thorough) include the AIX wiki article,, and podcasts featuring IBM experts.
