I am trying to run Vi (not Vim), because i'm curious about some older commands like
I saw this
brew install ex-vi
So I did that brew line.
Then when I tried to run vi,
$vi<ENTER> I ran :help and it said Vim!
So I did
$which vi<ENTER> and it showed
I did this
Apples-MBP:~ apple$ ls -l /usr/local/bin/vi lrwxr-xr-x 1 apple admin 29 8 Aug 03:32 /usr/local/bin/vi -> ../Cellar/ex-vi/050325/bin/vi
So it looks like it should be running ex-vi but it's not it's running vim. I can't see why?
I tried Running VI on Lion and it mentions about getting vim to run like vi, but I want vi itself.
I don't entirely trust vim's compatibility mode (vim -Cu NONE), as presenting vi. (like in vim's compatibility mode I see multiple layers of undo with ctrl-r), which I heard that vi doesn't have. So I don't want Vim compatibility mode, I want Vi. I installed it but it isn't running.
How can I run vi and why isn't it running?
