index.txt looking for space to fit some custom keymappings, I noticed something.
^ - First CHAR of current line N- - First CHAR N lines higher N_ - First CHAR N-1 lines lower N+ - First CHAR N lines lower N<CR> - First CHAR N lines lower N$ - End of line N-1 lines lower
Why the inconsistencies here, and the lack of coverage?
$takes a number, while
_without a number is seemingly the same as
+do the same thing.
Why isn't it something more along the lines of
N- - First CHAR N lines higher N^ - First CHAR N-1 lines lower <CR> - First CHAR N lines lower N+ - End of line N lines higher N$ - End of line N-1 lines lower N_ - End of line N lines lower
- vi backwards compatibility?
- implementation details, something regarding count/motions, or how vim reads input?
- antiquated keyboard layouts?
- I overlooked some default mappings?
