the “vi” built into busybox-1.16.1 on my Synology DiskStation DS213+ just fooled me

I was trying to find an occurrence of /lib/cpp in a log file, and I wanted to avoid using ‘/’ in a regexp, so I tried ‘lib.’ instead. But that didn’t match the obvious occurrence. I executed a “:set magic”; the command got accepted, but that still didn’t change its behaviour. Installed VIM, tried the same, and everything worked as expected. Still a little frustrating. It looked like I am loosing even my basic VI competence.

Expecting Sven G.’s “like it” on FB…
