 for Elvis
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

      n 1: street name for lysergic acid diethylamide [syn: acid,
           back breaker, battery-acid, dose, dot, Elvis,
           loony toons, Lucy in the sky with diamonds, pane,
           superman, window pane, Zen]

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

      A vi lookalike which supports nearly all of the vi/ex
     commands, in both visual mode and colon mode.
     Like vi/ex, elvis stores most of the text in a temporary file
     instead of RAM.  This allows it to edit files that are too
     large to fit in a single process' data space.
     Elvis runs under BSD UNIX, AT&T SysV UNIX, MINIX,
     MS-DOS, Atari TOS, Coherent, OS9/68000, VMS,
     Windows 95 and Windows NT.
     Elvis is just as awful to use as vi, so someone will like it.
     Version 1.8pl14 (1995-09-04).
