=head2 SYNOPSIS

language of the Kephra command line

=head2 Main Idea

The best thing about vi is the way to control the editor with short comands,
that get typed into a seperate line.
For complex operations is this the fastest way to get thigs done.
Thats because each latter can open a new context.
This way you can stuff much more commands onto the keayboard.
Also the the options of each command multiply the into the unimaginable,
if you just think in terms of point and click or simple key combinations

Why not Perl? All commands would be much longer/complicated.
But its also possible. In a different command line just one tab away.

=head2 Name

Kephra, depicted as a scarab is a desert beatle. 
For communication the beat the sand, making low frequency sound signals.
The initials (db) are also a hint to a favorite style of music.
