redoes the last insertion/deletion, use VIPER, a @code{vi} emulation
mode which comes with Emacs, and which appears to support it.

Note that Calc 2.02f needs patching to work with Emacs 21 and later.
@cindex @code{calculator}, a package
Emacs 21.1 and later comes with a package called @file{calculator.el}.
It doesn't support all the mathematical wizardry offered by Calc, such
as matrices, special functions, and statistics, but is more than
adequate as a replacement for @code{xcalc} and similar programs.

Since Emacs 19.29, the preferred @code{vi} emulation in Emacs is VIPER
(@kbd{M-x viper-mode @key{RET}}), which comes with Emacs. It extends
and supersedes VIP (including VIP 4.3) and provides @code{vi} emulation
at several levels, from one that closely follows @code{vi} to one that
departs from @code{vi} in several significant ways.
For Emacs 19.28 and earlier, the following version of VIP is generally
better than the one distributed with Emacs:
