Tip for the day: VI AND NOT DISK SPACE

If you get the error while opening a file in vi,

"There is not enough space in the file system. [Press return to continue]"

and you know that you have space in your home directory, than simply use this command in vi, say

:set dir=

then press:

:e .

You will be able to see the entire file.
