    Hola,

    i think you can take other approaches to solve your problems instead of using vim, or making acme behave like vim.

    see what others have done with acme:

    http://plan9.bell-labs.com/iwp9/pape...acme-trans.pdf

    may be that could give you more ideas, other perspectives, etc. about the tasks you do with those files how do you do them.

    may be if you want just compare some columns, or some rows, or look for a value, or change values, or whatever, you could write functions, regexp, etc which will make your tasks easier and more confortable to do. acme chording is really great when you get used to it.

    or even writting an acme client , having a programmable environment gives you many options, original programmes could not imagine all the situations, but they were (and are) smart and included tools making you able to set the program to your needs.

    good luck
