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.

“I really wonder how you heathens who never learned an advanced text editor like ViM”

well thats easy, we use gnu tools and python– and we type more things in right the first time than anyone who needs a so-called “advanced” text editor :)

“blegh! a word processor”

text editors of unusual size? i dont think they exist…
