Elvis 2.0 is a clone of the vi/ex, the standard Unix editor.
Elvis 2.0 adds the following features (beyond mere emulation of vi/ex)...
- Multiple edit buffers, so you can edit several files at the same time.
- Multiple windows, so those edit buffers can share screen space.
- Multiple display modes, including...
- "normal" which looks like the traditional vi screen
- "hex" which is good for viewing binary files
- "syntax" which supports syntax coloring (configurable)
- "man" which formats Unix man-pages like nroff
- "html" which formats Web pages
- Online hypertextual help
- A variety of user interfaces, including...
- "termcap" which uses text screens like the traditional vi
- "x11" which provides a GUI interface for Unix/X-windows users
- Compiling: elvis can parse error messages, and move to source of error
- WYSIWYG printing, with drivers for most printer types
- Built-in calculator with a C-like syntax
- Extreme customizability
