This Space for Rent

Vim sucks dead bunnies through a straw

Vim, how do I hate you? Let me count the ways:

  1. Syntax highlighting.
  2. set noai doesn't work.
  3. Crappy documentation.
  4. Ships as vi on R*dh*t Linux.
  5. three pages of output for set all?

If I wanted emacs, I know where to find it, and I DON'T WANT EMACS.

Added points for frustration are that the ESR-termcap is broken by design and thus breaks the real vi, which makes it really fun to rebuild a vi that will work on the now-terminally-broken ncurses library.

Grrr. GRRRR!
