Requires: GTK+ (1.2 with threads support), and Vim.
Planned features: Number prefix for commands, selection in "visual mode", configurable key bindings and menus.

Premia CodeWrite - vi emulation
Doug Kellogg [980417] is using it: "It is up to version 5.1 and is published by Premia in Portland, Oregon, USA ( and is descended from the Sage Programmers Editor (SPE) from what was Polytron and is now Sage, also of Portland."
Charlie Guttenberg informed me [980414]: "Codewright is a programmer's editor made by the Premia Corp. Besides basic editing, it can tie into whatever sccs and build environments you may have. The version we have, V3.1e (1995), supports emulation of four editors: CUA, Epsilon, Brief, and good old vi."
