Hi

I have enjoyed discovering the console version of vi for windows.

Is there any prospect of future developments?

Non-blinking cursor
Map keys for use in modeless mode?
Fix CTRL_C in modeless mode to do a copy?
Access the windows clipboard?

Is there any more documentation?


Does the source code for this editor compile using Open Watcom - without any additional dependencies?

Kind Regards

Gavin

Nobody prevents you from enhancing Open Watcom and tools.

You know \winnt\help\vi.chm? Or look at the vi source:

That is how vi.exe is built.
