  • I'd be very interested in seeing some more of these useful vim mappings. I've been digging vim ever since I started playing with Red Hat back in Jan 2002, (and have gone so far as to install a Mac OS Classic version of vim on my PPC 7600 running OS 8.6)

    I've gotten a lot of vim knowledge thanks to MetaCosm's IRC-style tutorial [vi-improved.com] (which seems to be down at the moment but you can find it cached on google), and the #vim channel on irc.freenode.net, but fresh input from people that know some serious vim-fu would be greatly appreciated.

    my favorite so far was a simple :r !date that inserts the current date string into my program so it's easy to fix the current release date when I make changes. However I recently learned a new trick... !!date overwrites the current line with the output of the date program, so I don't need to delete the previous line after the new one gets pasted in by :r
