Vi-compatible text editor

'vile' is a text editor which is extremely compatible with vi. It has extended capabilities in many areas, including multi-file editing and viewing, mouse support, infinite undo, additional operators, and rectangular operations. It has an optional Perl interface, and can also be built as "xvile", which is fully X-aware.
