A question on the VI Editor: How is the "%" command implemented ?
 
Hi all,

I am a newbie to Linux having just started out. I had a question on the implementation of the linux 'vi' editor command : "%". This command would find a matching brace for the source brace pointed to by the cursor. What data structure is used to implement this command by the editor ?

thanks and regards,
Rajesh.
