Most people use about 10% of vi's capabilities. Learn the other 90% and increase your speed and enjoyment in text editing. This course builds upon the "Editing with vi: Fundamentals" course. It is expected that the student is familiar with vi fundamentals (moving around the edit buffer, altering text, and vi command language syntax).
