Quick reference for basic editing in vi
i = go into insert mode, here you may use arrows to navigate text, and edit it with the keyboard as normal. Esc (the escape key) = exit insert mode
WHEN NOT in insert mode you may use
- w (then enter) = write changes.
- q (then enter) = exit vi
- q! (then enter) = exit vi without saving changes.
