Hello all,

I'm happy to announce the first public release of my Creative-Commons
licensed book on the Vim 7 editor.

The book is called "A Byte of Vim" and is available at
http://www.swaroopch.com/notes/Vim

From the website, you can download the book, and freely share it and
make changes (it is under a Creative Commons license) and even
directly fix any mistakes as well (it's a wiki).

More details are at http://www.swaroopch.com/blog/a-free-book-on-vim/

I hope this benefits fellow Vimmers, both beginners and intermediate
users, and I also look forward to constructive suggestions and
comments from the community.

Regards,
Swaroop

Thanks for the book and thanks for making it free. Sharing knowledge is
how knowledge can really advance.

Thanks for your hard work and for sharing!

I'm sure that as a newbee I will learn some new tricks and will try to
spread the news among my buddies.

Man you book looks excellent and very pleasant to read.
Your own blog is pretty cool also what kind of theme/skin do you use
for mediawiki ... this one is a killer
I'm dreaming to have a wiki like yours for my students

Thank you very much for all you hard work !
Cheers

François

Awesome! Thank you for all of your hard work. It is especially nice
that the beginning starts the reader off gradually. After using vim for
a couple of years I've forgotten how weird it seems at first, so I
probably wouldn't explain it that good to someone. I will be sure to
share your book to spread the vim propaganda. ;-)

Thanks for the wonderful book!

Take a look at http://www.swaroopch.com/notes/Vim_en:Typing_Skills
The sign at the bottom of the cheatsheet picture _possibly_ is not
correct -- "vi/vim cheat sheet by viewmu.com".
Shouldn't "viewmu.com" be "viemu.com" as written on cheetsheet
itself?

Thank you Swaroop! I've begun reading it and must say it's very well
written. And I have no doubts this great community of us vim users here
will improve it through fixes, additions or small corrections --the wiki
format is a great idea.

Well done!!!
I've been only using vim for like 2/3 weeks now, and thus I can say that
it's just perfect for beginners like me!!!

Best regards,
jay

Thanks. I have put this info in the December "Did you know" on the wiki main page,
and have noted the book on the "Vim documentation" page (see link at top-right of
main page):
