Oh goodie: Another utility that borrows commands and keypresses from the vi arena!
I’m not being flippant; I think it’s important to point out toys and gadgets that follow the footsteps of a 35-plus-year-old application.
When you can brag that your application influenced software over the span of three-and-a-half decades, you can shout me down. 😉
As you can see by the help screen, bviplus makes a serious effort to keep touch with its vi heritage.
But I have to make a confession at this point: I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve needed a hex editor in the past decade.
Not that bviplus (or bvi) is somehow unnecessary. When you need one, it’s a godsend.
But this definitely falls into the category of “nifty utility that I will probably not install, until I actually need it.” 😐
