This Perl extension to vile gives you the ability to send edit requests to a running Vile (sort of like gnuserv does for Emacs). Vile is lightweight enough to run several at a time, but when using a file manager (like TkDesk) it is convenient to click on files and "add" them to a current Vile session.
Attached are two files, Vileserv.pm and vileget. Vileserv.pm is for loading into a perl-enabled Vile session, and vileget is a utility for sending requests to the editor. You can use pod2man to get the man pages:
pod2man Vileserv.pm > vileserv.man pod2man vileget > vileget.man
Vileserv was written by J Chris Coppick in 1998.
