[CALUG] Best programming app

I don't know about supercharged, but powerful definitely.  I just
love showing off in front of the microsofties at work, by pulling
their data over to Linux, getting a listing of files and then using vi
regexp's and commands to modify it, and giving them back.  All
of this takes a couple of minutes in vi, where it would take an
hour or more with the best M$ has to offer (whatever that
might be).

And it seems like I learn a new feature each month.  So as powerful
as I have found it to be, I feel like I am using less than half of what
it is capable of doing.  So come to think of it, it's really not a stretch
to say that by taking full advantage of the PC101 keyboard (vim) and
the mouse (gvim) is supercharging the already powerful vi.

Later . . .   Jim
