TITLE
	
	Elvis - UNIX editor vi/ex clone now available for AmigaDOS.

VERSION

	This version is 1.5, a replacement to 1.4 which did not
	support AmigaDOS.

AUTHOR

	Elvis was written by Steve Kirkendall.
	Elvis was ported to AmigaDOS by Mike Rieser.

DESCRIPTION

	From the introduction to Elvis by Steve Kirkendall:

	       Elvis is a clone of vi/ex, the standard UNIX
	    editor.  Elvis 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.  Also, the edit buffer can
	    survive a power failure or crash.

	       Elvis runs under BSD UNIX, AT&T SysV UNIX, Minix,
	    MS-DOS, Atari TOS, Coherent, OS9/68000, VMS and
	    AmigaDos.  The next version is also expected to add
	    MS-Windows, OS/2 and MacOS.  Contact me before you
	    start porting it to some other OS, because somebody
	    else may have already done it for you.

	       Elvis is freely redistributable, in either source
	    form or executable form. There are no restrictions on
	    how you may use it.

FEATURES

	Under both 1.3 and 2.0 versions of AmigaDOS the following
	features are supported:

	    Elvis is clean of Enforcer hits.

	    Elvis supports Global environment variables.

	    Elvis allows you edit files nearly 2 MB in size, using only
	    about 115 KB of memory.

	    Elvis works as a line editor and can read script files when
	    named ex.

	    Elvis supports most vi .exrc definitions, put them in
	    elvis.rc in either s: or your $HOME directory

	    Elvis READONLY works for -r--d files, and when Elvis is
	    named view.

	    Elvis uses an internal TERMCAP entry by default.

	    Elvis supports user defined $TERM and $TERMCAP environment
	    variables.

	    Elvis supports window resizing.

	    Elvis works over an AUX: port, and has an internal vt100-80
	    TERMCAP for this purpose.

	    Elvis supports Function keys and Arrow keys.

	    Elvis supports shifted Arrow Keys, and shifted Function
	    keys.

	    Elvis can be told where to put its temp files via $TMP or
	    $TEMP environment variables.

	    Elvis makes writes of no larger than 256 bytes to the
	    console.device to prevent problems accompanying large
	    writes.

	    Elvis also turns off the cursor to speed output.

	Under AmigaDOS 2.04 the following features are supported:

	    Elvis can use any user defined shell. (csh, ksh, conman, etc)

	    Elvis can be run, and opens its own window.
	    (eg. Run Elvis S:Startup-Sequence)

	    Elvis supports filters via PIPE:.  Elvis multitasks and
	    runs programs Asynch.

	    Elvis supports Local environment variables.

	    Elvis supports tag lookup using an external tag program
	    called ref.

	    Elvis command line supports AmigaDOS regular expression and
	    `*' wildcards via calls to MatchFirst, MatchNext, MatchEnd.

	    Elvis preserves file protection bits (eg: s-rw--).

	    Elvis will support 101 key keyboards.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

	Elvis requires more than the standard 4000 byte stack.
	A stack of 10,000 bytes should be adequate.

	Elvis requires 115 KB of memory to run.  If its
	told to keep its temp files in RAM, it will of course
	require more.

HOST NAME

	Elvis is currently available for anonymous FTP from
	ab20.larc.nasa.gov (128.155.23.64).
	Please copy it else where, since ab20 is going away.

DIRECTORY

	Elvis was placed in the /incoming/amiga directory.
	It will most likely find its way to:
	/amiga/utilities/editors.

FILE NAMES

	AmiElvis-1.5.lha contains both source and binaries.
	The archive creates the following directory structure:
		Elvis-1.5/
		Elvis-1.5/elvisman.txt - ascii format version of docs
		Elvis-1.5/src/ - complete source to Elvis 1.5
		Elvis-1.5/doc/ - troff source requiring ms and an
		Elvis-1.5/bin/ - executables made with Aztec C 5.2b

DISTRIBUTABILITY

	Elvis is freely redistributable, in either source form or
	executable form. There are no restrictions on how you may
	use it.

OTHER

	The programs are not pure, but can be Rez'ed.

	The Elvis binary was configured to use only about 20 KB of
	memory for editing files, the rest is written to disk.  If you
	want to increase this, you may have to use large data model.
