  Elvis 
 
    A  {vi}  lookalike  which  supports  nearly  all  of  the  vi/ex 
  commands,  in  both  visual  mode  and  colon  mode. 
 
  Like  vi/ex,  elvis  stores  most  of  the  text  in  a  temporary  file 
  instead  of  RAM.  This  allows  it  to  edit  files  that  are  too 
  large  to  fit  in  a  single  process'  data  space. 
 
  Elvis  runs  under  {BSD}  UNIX,  AT&T  {SysV}  UNIX,  {MINIX}, 
  {MS-DOS},  {Atari  TOS},  {Coherent},  {OS9}/68000,  {VMS}, 
  {Windows  95}  and  {Windows  NT}. 
 
  Elvis  is  just  as  awful  to  use  as  vi  so  someone  will  like  it 
 
  Version  1.8pl14  (1995-09-04).
