Hi,

viper in combination with vimpulse works great for me. The visual marking works well, except the rectangular marking, but I can get along with cua for these cases. Obviously, you won't have every vim command, but in combination with the power of emacs you can have most of it or even more. Once you got used to some annoying stuff in the visual mode (marking to the end of the line stops at the last character) it is great :-)

Regards!
Fabian

(PST) didst step forth and proclaim thus:

My first attempt didn't go so well. I chose viper level 5.

1) V did not put me into line visual mode, instead it attempted to
"Find file in other window".

2) v did not put me into visual mode, instead it attempted to "Find
file"

Looks like there is something called viper-visual-mode in vimpulse.el. I wonder why that does not work?

3) Neither C-c nor C-[ took me out of insert mode back to normal mode.
There's no way I'm reaching for ESC each time.
If you run Emacs in a terminal window (emacs -nw), C-[ should work for
esc.  C-c works in lower levels (though not in ex).

Viper emulates system V vi, not vim, and incompletely at that.  Things
like :set nu don't work.  vimpulse.el seems to be all the rage these
days.
