There's nothing that hard-core Unix and Linux users are more fanatical about than their text editor. Editors are the subject of adoration and worship, or of scorn and ridicule, depending upon whether the topic of discussion is your editor or someone else's. vi has been the standard editor for close to 30 years. Popular on Unix and Linux, it has a growing following on Windows systems, too. Most experienced system administrators cite vi as their tool of choice. And since 1986, this book has been the guide for vi. However, Unix systems are not what they were 30 years ago, and neither is this book. While retaining all the valuable features of previous editions, the 7th edition of "Learning the vi and vim Editors" has been expanded to include detailed information on vim, the leading vi clone. vim is the default version of vi on most Linux systems and on Mac OS X, and is available for many other operating systems too.With this guide, you learn text editing basics and advanced tools for both editors, such as multi-window editing, how to write both interactive macros and scripts to extend the editor, and power tools for programmers - all in the easy-to-follow style that has made this book a classic."Learning the vi and vim Editors" includes: a complete introduction to text editing with vi: How to move around vi in a hurry; beyond the basics, such as using buffers; vi's global search and replacement; advanced editing, including customizing vi and executing Unix commands; how to make full use of vim: extended text objects and more powerful regular expressions; multi-window editing and powerful vim scripts; how to make full use of the GUI version of vim, called gvim; and, vim's enhancements for programmers, such as syntax highlighting, folding and extended tags.Coverage of three other popular vi clones - nvi, elvis, and vile - is also included in this title. You'll find several valuable appendixes, including an alphabetical quick reference to both vi and ex mode commands for regular vi and for vim, plus an updated appendix on vi and the Internet. Learning either vi or vim is required knowledge if you use Linux or Unix, and in either case, reading this book is essential. After reading this book, the choice of editor will be obvious for you too.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Arnold Robbins, an Atlanta native, is a professional programmer and technical author. He has been working with Unix systems since 1980, when he was introduced to a PDP-11 running a version of Sixth Edition Unix. His experience also includes multiple commercial Unix systems, from Sun, IBM, HP and DEC. He has been working with GNU/Linux systems since 1996. He likes his Macintosh laptop, but it has been commandeered by one of his daughters.
Arnold has also been a heavy awk user since 1987, when he became involved with gawk, the GNU project's version of awk. As a member of the POSIX 1003.2 balloting group, he helped shape the POSIX standard for awk. He is currently the maintainer of gawk and its documentation.
O'Reilly has been keeping him busy: He is author and/or coauthor of the bestselling titles: Unix In A Nutshell, Effective awk Programming, sed & awk, Classic Shell Scripting, and several pocket references.
Elbert is a professional software engineer and software architect recently finishing a 21-year career in the telcom industry. He wrote a full screen editor in assembler in 1983 as his first professional assignment, and has had special interest in editors since. He loves connecting Unix to anything and once wrote a stream editor program to automate JCL edits for mainframe monthly configurations by streaming mainframeJCL to a stream editor on an RJE connected Unix box.
He loves tinkering with everything Unix and considers any environment incomplete without his suite of Unix work-alike tools and the latest version of vim. He is a Unix Shell specialist, writing entire applications with only the shell.
His telcom honored him with their highest award for money-saving applications that he authored using a set of mainframe screen-scraping tools he wrote himself. They continue to use those applications today. He was also one of three founding team members that brought web 1.0 to the corporate consciousness in his telco position, and his team featured on the cover of CIO Magazine for their innovative and pioneering works.
He also served a brief stint on the original Microsoft NT beta support team in 1992.
He loves bicycling, music, and reading. Today he lives in the Chicago area where he occasionally takes on short term projects and works on personal software products.

It is well structured and covers the most important topics in a very senseable approach. Besides that it also has a part about other Vi clones such as Elvis, so it really comes as a complete book about everything you ever wanted to know. It starts with an easy introduction, offers some small typing exercises just in case you dont have some practical example yourself.

The majority of the first few chapters I was already familiar with; however, along with solidifying some of my previous knowledge, I did learn several new tricks! This book is apparently a classic and I would recommend it for any intermediate-level vim user who wants to flesh out their vim skills.
I have heard the stale advice to "google it",if at all that can be called an advice. And they are wrong.
Google has plenty of good information, many of them methodically walk you through as well. But remember Google has a purpose, if you are stuck on something specific, google might be helpful, but for learning the nuts and bolts and working 8 hours a day in Linux and Vi, you are better off knowing much more than few basic commands . I have few checklist to see if you need this book. Even if your answer is no to one of this.. Go for it.
> Here is a word "Consistant", How do you change the word to Consistent (Hint fa )
> Find/replace across a large file
> Jump across large blocks of codes instead of scrolling
> Ability to chose between I, a,s or x for editing something
> Copy same 5 lines of codes and put it in 4 different places
> Remove everything after = sign in a code.
> Copy bunch of code from fileA and paste it on the 5th line of fileB
> Do you know what :^$ dd n.n.n does (Find the Empty line, deleted it,cleared many empty lines)
> Do you know how to keep a file for reference and edit the other file based off it ( split windows)
If the bulk of your workday is going to be on Linux /Unix screen, buying this book is a slam dunk decision. Don't stumble upon great tricks to be effective. Professional sportsmen learn the right way. Why Not You?
The writing is clear and often humorous (that is, if you are into the geeky, Unix type of humor) and there is good progression from fundamental towards advanced topics. I only wish the authors did not waste so many pages on the other vi clones (which I had no desire to learn about, but your objectives may vary) and focused instead on some of the more involved parts of vi/vim, eg. scripting.
The other reviews have pretty much said it all. So the only thing I'll add is that Vim has an extremely powerful regular expressions ("REGEX") find/replace capability. Learning REGEX is an exercise unto itself, but if you learn a bit of Vim find/replace, and bit of its REGEX syntax, you can do some right powerful text manipulatin' right there in the editor...
