Vim Advanced - Day 2

Vim Advanced - Day 2

  • 2020-2-28

Ouch! It's the daily Vim time! I'll share with you the new Vim skills/knowledge I've learnt today :)

  1. :e! drop all the changes of the current file.

  2. vim - we use this pattern in bash to edit the output of another command. For instance:

    info sed | vim - # use Vim to edit the output of the `info sed`

  3. C clear text after the cursor of the current line, which equals to the c+$. Kindly notice the difference between c+c and C, the former is to clear the whole line and enter insert mode but the latter is to remove text after the cursor and switch to insert mode.
