When I do this updmap.cfg is opened in the terminal window and the  
title bar indicates that vim is running.  I can see where and how one  
would add the information about the map files.  However, I have no  
idea how one actually edits and saves the file.  I realise this is  
really a question about terminal.app and/or vim, but many thanks in  
advance if it's easy to say what one does.
