  • Based on you last two question I strongly suggest that you read this question. The built-in documentation of vim is one of the best documentation systems I know and knowing how to use it will definitely save you some time.

    @black.swordsman your added text isn't really appropriate for an edit as it seems you've just pasted in a bunch of text from Vim help. This answer's author probably doesn't want that. And actually pasting in chunks of documentation doesn't work as a separate, standalone answer either. If you want to create a new answer containing a link to that help section along with a summary of things in your own words then that's a better choice. Thanks for participating.
