Yes, I've used both and they're fantastic, compared with that Pr1me
editor. It was a line editor and IIRC, you could only use relative line
number, not aboslute, other that the 1st and last lines. So, if you
were working on line 29 and you wanted to work on line 12, you'd have to
jump -17 lines. You couldn't just jump to line 12. There were many
other oddities, which I have (thankfully) long since forgotten.
