VI editor in linux can be use in three modes, they are as follows:

  1. Command mode – this is the mode can be treated as default, where you start in using the VI editor.
  2. Edit mode – this mode allows you to do text editing, i.e. edit your file's content.
  3. Ex mode – this mode is used to interact with vi and it contains instructions to process a file. basically execute file with different parameters.
