I am a newbie in linux,maybe it's a silly question but could not make it though.
I have ubuntu 12.04 installed without GNOME and now as i wanted to know more about linux am facing few queries.
I want to write a script which will automate few daily task.
Now I have opened terminal and selected BASH(default) by typing
echo $SHELL to write a script I found that a editor is the choise like vi or vim.
Firstly can I do script in open terminal/BASH without installing vim. I have installed vim with the following cmd
sudo apt-get install vim.
How to check from CLI whether vim is successfully installed and where can I find the files in the directories.
