3.11: Where can I get Perl macros for vi?

    For a complete version of Tom Christiansen's vi configuration file, see
    http://www.cpan.org/authors/Tom_Christiansen/scripts/toms.exrc.gz , the
    standard benchmark file for vi emulators. The file runs best with nvi,
    the current version of vi out of Berkeley, which incidentally can be
    built with an embedded Perl interpreter--see
    http://www.cpan.org/src/misc/ .


The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.
