Licensed as charityware and released in the early 1990s, VIM is an enhanced version of the Unix vi editor and is mostly compatible with it. VIM is command driven, but also offers a GUI option that accepts the same commands. VIM can be customized by the user, and it accepts plug-ins for added functionality. For more information, visit www.vim.org. See vi.
