Vim is a text editor that is an improved version of the old Unix editor vi. It is available for almost all operating systems and is pre-installed on many Unix-⁠like systems. It can be run with a graphical or terminal user interface (GUI or TUI). For an overview, see wikipedia.org/wiki/Vim_(text_editor).
