EVIM(1)                      General Commands Manual                     EVIM(1)



NAME
       evim - easy Vim, edit a file with Vim and setup for modeless editing

SYNOPSIS
       evim [options] [file ..]
       eview

DESCRIPTION
       eVim starts Vim and sets options to make it behave like a modeless
       editor.  This is still Vim but used as a point-and-click editor.  This
       feels a lot like using Notepad on MS-Windows.  eVim will always run in
       the GUI, to enable the use of menus and toolbar.

       Only to be used for people who really can't work with Vim in the normal
       way.  Editing will be much less efficient.

       eview is the same, but starts in read-only mode.  It works just like evim
       -R.

       See vim(1) for details about Vim, options, etc.

       The 'insertmode' option is set to be able to type text directly.
       Mappings are setup to make Copy and Paste work with the MS-Windows keys.
       CTRL-X cuts text, CTRL-C copies text and CTRL-V pastes text.  Use CTRL-Q
       to obtain the original meaning of CTRL-V.

OPTIONS
       See vim(1).

FILES
       /usr/local/share/vim/vim64/evim.vim
                      The script loaded to initialize eVim.

AKA
       Also Known As "Vim for gumbies".  When using evim you are expected to
       take a handkerchief, make a knot in each corner and wear it on your head.
