 Definition: 

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.
