This is vim 1.27 compiled for MSDOS.
Vim is one of the most capable VI clones available. It
includes the full visual commands set, and has extras such
as multi-level undo, online help, interactive macro
recording, modelines, paragraph-level reformatting, block
marking by character, line or column, saving files in DOS or
unix format, ({[ matching, and many others.
It is stable and fast.
The name "vim" means "vi imitator."
