Things in ViM I Really Miss June 22, 2016

When I am using a different text editor or (blegh! a word processor), there are certain things I miss. Namely:

  • quickly searching for things with /<regex>
  • quickly replacing with :%s/…/…/
  • marking points and jumping between them.
  • Jumping to the end of a sentence or the end of a paragraph or the end of a word, or the beginnings of the above.
  • Repeating the last command I just did.
  • Recording a macro and running it multiple times.

I really wonder how you heathens who never learned an advanced text editor like ViM get along with your life. It’s like watching you trying to create a fire with a stick and a string while I have a microwave.
