in thread VI in Perl

Good point.

However, I think that when the cache is implemented, and I type '250dd' in the middle of a 3000-line file, linked list will not be much slower than splice(), or maybe even faster (or maybe I am just fooling myself).

I think the implementation is such because back when I was contemplating this program, back in July, I was convinced by some people and some programming literature that all editors are written using linked lists. I did not want to swim against the stream. We'll see how it pans out, I guess, I can always rewrite v_list using arrays.

Thank God for OO! :)

Dominus was right.

    Dominus was right on both counts. Arrays are faster and simpler. I re-implemented vip using arrays and it works like a charm. This also reduced my code by about 300 lines.
