like Evim. The few times I loaded it by mistake, I wondered why vim wouln't
react "preoperly" until I realised my mistake.
Normally, in (g)Vim, when you're not in normal mode, the mode is displayed
at the bottom left (--INSERT--, --REPLACE--, etc.), the rest is just
realising which errors one has made.
And -- Vim has an excellent "tutor" with lessons and graduated exercises,
and a help system that beats most M$ programs hands down. Have fun!
