One day I installed 'vim'.
Now I have nothing that is recognized as 'vi'
What do I actually install in order to regain this tidy little editor?

  update-alternatives --config vi

Then select nvi as the alternative.  Or you could remove vim too which
would also return vi to nvi.  This is described in some detail in this
note posted previously.




This update-alternatives application needs better P.R.

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one technical
problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
