Levee – vi clone

Levee (also known as Captain Video) is a screen oriented editor based on the Unix editor “vi”. It provides a terse, powerful way to enter and edit text.

Levee is a modal editor. It operates in 3 modes: visual, command, and insert. Most of the editing work is done is visual mode, file reading and writing is done in command mode, and insert mode does what you would expect.

When you enter Levee, you may specify an address to start editing at. These addresses are in the same format as command mode addresses, except that a naked + will put you at the very end of the file.

It was originally written for USCD Pascal I.5 on the Terak 8510a, ported to USCD Pascal 4.0 on the Sage and Pinnacle 68000-based microcomputers.

The program runs on Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, as well as Windows and OS/2.
