Origin: [OE. vigour, vigor, OF. vigor, vigur, vigour, F. vigueur, fr. L. vigor, fr. vigere to be lively or strong. See Vegetable, Vigil.]
Vigor is a clone of vi for UNIX that adds, as a joke, a cruel parody of Clippy, the Microsoft Office assistant. The name is a portmanteau of vi and Igor, Dr. Frankenstein's assistant. Vigor was written by Joel Ray "Piquan" Holveck in Sunnyvale, California, and the logo for Vigor was created by Tom Mulder. Vigor has spawned ports to other text editors as well, including Vim. There is also a Vigor visualization plugin for the audio player XMMS. The idea for Vigor originated in the User Friendly on-line comic strip by J.D. "Illiad": Vigor is currently hosted on SourceForge.net. Released under a BSD license, Vigor is free software.
