On Slackware, vi is actually elvis which is a bit more advanced than BSD vi.
Said BSD vi does not exist anymore, as far as I know, and has been replaced by nvi on at least OpenBSD.
Why yes, I am an insufferable vi nerd, why do you ask? Sorry about this nerdiness interruption! 🤓
humm you're right, vi is a link to elvis, heh and ex is a link to vim!
....and if it was my old server tne BSD vi sources didnt make it to /usr/local/src which means it was either my old laptop or the ps/2 that I had BSD vi on. I'll have to do some digging....
All these Slackware boxes start blending together after 25+ years!
@goosey Short for examine, I guess?
not actually sure, but it sounds good. 😀
