First, uudecode that macro file.  Assume it's saved as "maze.vi" in the
current directory.  Next, write the maze out to a file.  I'll suppose
it's named "maze", also in the current directory.


vi <enter>
:r maze<enter>
:source maze.vi<enter>

And it should solve the maze before your very eyes.  :-)  (It doesn't
work on most "stock" vi's because the macro recursion depth is limited.
You need a clone like "vim" or somesuch to do it.)
