I recently downloaded Elvis from Atari archive, 'cause I use VI all the
time at work, and didn't want to have to learn a new editor. I got it all
unpacked, but elvis.ttp won't start up from the desktop (flashes some
message about environment). Well, in checking the documentation, the
TERM variable *must* be set, and the docs also mention needing to use
the shell program so that TERM *can* be set. But it's not included in
the distribution! Where/how can I get it??
If it's not already obvious, I don't have a UNIX look-alike environment
on my Atari (yet! I'd like to get one, but would prefer to get freeware or
shareware, and don't know of such an animal), so I can't set the TERM
variable any other way. Without some sort of shell, Elvis is useless to me,
and I'll have to learn Emacs (shudder!) in order to be able to do anything.
So where do I get the limited Elvis shell, or a freeware/shareware UNIX
type shell? Anyone?
