(I'm really not sure how I would google this. Sorry if this has already been asked and please just link me in the right direction in that case)
I'm using Vim in cygwin environment and marked a line in visual mode using 0,v,$.
When I then pressed :, Vim automatically wrote
:'<, '> into the command line. I'm wondering what this does and what all the signs mean. The one thing I found using google is from the vim wiki.
:'<,'>w !cat > /dev/clipboard
Could you please explain this command step by step? I've been working with Vim for about a year now, but I still consider myself a complete newbie to it.
