Hi Alexey,

it is possible though not very convenient:. You could write
a function doing the following:

1. read EDITOR with ⎕ENV (or use vim right away)
2. call your editor using )HOST or with popen() via ⎕FIO
3. read the file produced by the editor with ⎕FIO
4. FX the the function text read.

You can optionally bind that function to a user defined command.

Another option could be Blake McBride's editor written in APL,
see http://www.gnu.org/software/apl/Community.html

Or Elias' emacs mode for GNU APL.
