+.TH EXM 1df "March 2017" "Manual page for exm"
+\- invoke Vim's ex(1) with a dumb terminal
+works around a quirk of Vim that causes it to clear the screen when invoked as
+ex(1) interactively. It applies Vim's -T option to force the terminal to the
+builtin "dumb" terminal.
+This doesn't work on its first invocation from any given terminal, but does
+work thereafter. I haven't yet figured out why.
+This breaks switching to visual mode with :visual somewhat, as the terminal
+will persist in its dumb state. I'm not sure there's a way to fix this. If
+there were a Vim :autocmd for mode switching, it might be possible, or perhaps
+by wrapping :visual somehow to :set terminal=$TERM.
