Yes! Wear the geek label proudly.I absolutely love vi and use only that. In the beginning it's all a bit strange and counter-intuitive but when you get the hang of it, its is awesome. Yanking a couple of lines here, placing them there, deleting from the current cursor position until the end of the file, etc. I guess I'm a real geek now ;-)
would a redirected cat output be an editor also?
cat > /path/to/nameoffile
cat >> nameoffile
Can you give most used/needed commands of Vi/Vim?
