Yeah, but I don't want to learn another "language" just to use vi
In emacs its:
ctrl - x -s to save
ctrl - x - c to quit
Its not too bad actually. I do wish to learn vi, as maybe someday I might be working on a system that does not have any editor that I am familiar with, and I understand that vi is pretty standard on just about any *nix system. The trouble is that I take the path of least resistance, and I am not *forced* to learn a new editor right now. Regarding the difficulty of learning any complex set of commands for an editor, its been my experience (and of course someone will likely give an example to remind me that the opposite is true) that the harder something is to learn, the more useful it is when it is learned. I should start with vi sometime soon, and get used to at least some of the basic stuff anyway.
