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


   evim [options] [file ..]


   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.


   See vim(1).

   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
