3. provides a handy reference of key combos you can use to get help,
save the file, and exit. Yes, you have to know that ^O means "ctrl+O",
but figuring that out is a lot easier than working out how to drive vi
After starting 'vi' there is:
~ type :help<Enter> or <F1> for on-line help
And after :help<Enter> there is:
Close this window: Use ":q<Enter>".
Get out of Vim: Use ":qa!<Enter>" (careful, all changes are lost!).
WHAT PREPEND EXAMPLE
Normal mode command :help x
Visual mode command v_ :help v_u
Insert mode command i_ :help i_<Esc>
Isn't that even more helpful than the '^' means 'ctrl' magic?
