Install the nvi text editor on Panther
Authored by: resuna on Feb 19, '05 10:00:30AM
Some comments:
  1. You don't need to sudo those two copy commends, just use the "-f" flag on cp on the first one. You should try and avoid getting in the habit of using "sudo" to deal with this kind of thing.
    cp -f /usr/share/automake-1.6/config.sub .
  2. A better fix on the problem is to put a "-" at the beginning of the first line, after you remove the extra ")"...
            -[ -f ] && $(cp) $(datadir)/vi/perl && \
                cd $(datadir)/vi/perl && $(chmod) $(fmode)
  3. No, VIM is not a replacement for VI.
