 VC++ 6.0 Editor Emulates VI?


I recently purchased MSVC++6.0 and am just learning to use it.

I was glancing through a book in the book store today and noticed that
in _Programming Microsoft Visual C++ Fifth Edition_ (the latest from
Microsoft, "Covers Version 6") that the editor is supposed to be able to
emulate VI.

Using Tools->Options->Compatibility, I see the following four choices
for "Current source editor emulation":

        Developer Studio
        Visual C++ 2.0

I suspect that the book is based on a pre-release version of MSVC++6.0
and the VI option didn't make it into the final product.

Does anyone know anything about this? Perhaps the VI emulation is an
add-on or perhaps there is some other way of customizing the editor.

If my return address contains "ZAP." please remove it. Sorry for the
inconvenience but the unsolicited email is getting out of control.
