In the same sentence or on common dirt? Doesn't happen and I thought I was famous to the coco crowd as being allergic to windows. Guess I don't make enough noise about it.Not on any real estate I own. If I obtain a windows machine, its because its hardware is usable for a machine control job. Windows is simply unusable.It (used windows hardware) gets the drive formatted to ext4 and a full blown linux install on it, leaving no trace of windows on it, usually by the next day.> The Vi docs linked may not help at all and he would > actually need the TSEdit manual which is in the archives.>Agreed.>>>>> Bill Pierce> "Charlie stole the handle, and the train it won't stop going, no way> to slow down!" - Ian Anderson - Jethro Tull>> My Music from the Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer 2 & 3> https://sites.google.com/site/dabarnstudio/> Co-Contributor, Co-Editor for CocoPedia> http://www.cocopedia.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page>> E-Mail: ooogalapasooo at aol.com>>>>>> -----Original Message-----> From: Barry Nelson <barry.nelson at amobiledevice.com>> To: coco <coco at maltedmedia.com>> Sent: Tue, Feb 20, 2018 1:24 am> Subject: Re: [Coco] VI Editor>> > On Feb 20, 2018, at 1:14 AM, Barry Nelson> > <barry.nelson at amobiledevice.com> wrote:> >> phil pt>> Mon Feb 19> > 18:00:24 EST 2018>> Does anyone know the VI commands to move the> > cursor to the start mark a>> block then move the cursor down and> > mark the end block and copy & past it>> in the file.  checked the> > internet and I can not find any clear steps on>> how to do it?>> >>> > Thanks> Here is a tome of knowledge for a young vi padowan:> >> > http://www.worldtimzone.com/res/vi.html> > <http://www.worldtimzone.com/res/vi.html>> Please note as mentioned> > else where in this thread that tsed, tsedit, and vim under> > OS-9/NitrOS9 are not exactly vi.
