In fact there is none in the standard cdk.exe or user.exe !
You can get vim, though:


   - what is it?
     - Vim (Vi Improved) is an almost compatible version of the UNIX
       editor vi whereby almost every possible command can be performed
       using only ASCII characters. Only the 'Q' command is missing
       (you don't need it). Many new features have been added: multi
       level undo, command line history, filename completion, block
       operations, editing of binary data, etc. Vi is available for
       the AMIGA, MS-DOS, Windows NT, and various versions of UNIX.
