Hi everybody
Thank you Gumnow for information about using Vim.
Now, I'm using vi, but I don't find information to configure macros.
I have to use vim or I can use vi, and Iabove al I would know where I can
find information to configure macros.
Else There is on the list that can give me some indication
to set and use macros?
Thank you in advance for all
