Is anyone familiar with "VIM version 7.3" ? Or what its function is on a MacBookPro?

VIM is a text editor for the command line (you can get GUIs for it as well). It's way better than Emacs (this is a comment for the *nix nerds here).

Now now Van.."way batter than Emacs"?? I think not..Emacs is just too loaded with features..I grant you that vi is great for a lot of work..and my main use of quick editing..

Oh yes, way way better. I need a text editor, not an operating system.

All I need to have a fantastic code editor can be done in four lines of vimrc configuration:
Code:
set guioptions-=T
set wrap!
set number
syntax on
Emacs could never be that elegant.

Haha, Emacs is for serious jobs then?

Perhaps I should give it another try. I'm bad for sticking with things that I'm comfortable with and it wouldn't hurt to try new apps/editing paradigms.

I'm just teasin' . I use VI for one reason, and one reason alone. It's installed on every Unix and Unix-like box out there. Not so much for Emacs, so I've played with it a couple times.. and that's it.

Here you go. If you need a nice "in-between" (something that blends OS X shortcuts with Vim ones), look no further than MacVim.
