3.12.11 Getting help


Next: 3.13 Customizing your Environment Up: 3.12 Using the vi Previous: 3.12.10 Running shell commands

vi doesn’t provide much in the way of interactive help (most UNIX programs don’t), but you can always read the man page for vi. vi is a visual front-end to the ex editor; it is ex which handles many of the last-line mode commands in vi. So, in addition to reading the man page for vi, see ex as well.
