It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems.
Vim is often called a "programmer's editor," and so useful for programming that
many consider it an entire IDE. It's not just for programmers, though. Vim is
perfect for all kinds of text editing, from composing email to editing
FreeBSD has the following Vim packages:
* vim: Console-only Vim (vim binary) with all runtime files
* vim-gtk3, -gtk2, -motif: Console Vim plus a GUI (gvim binary)
* vim-x11: Console Vim only, with xclipboard support
* vim-tiny: Vim binary only, with no runtime files. Not useful for most people;
intended for minimal (ex. jail) installations
