I have the following function:

[Test]
public void Some_Unit_Test_Function()
{
   // some setup-test-assert code
   ...
   // end of code
}

What's the 'vim' way of copying the entire function (including the [Test] attribute), and pasting it below the original function with one line spacing in-between. I want to end up with the following:

[Test]
public void Some_Unit_Test_Function()
{
   // some setup-test-assert code
   ...
   // end of code
}

[Test]
public void Some_Unit_Test_Function()
{
   // some setup-test-assert code
   ...
   // end of code
}

yapGo<C-o>p:

  1. yap to copy the paragraph
  2. G go to the end of file
  3. o to insert a new line and enter insert mode
  4. <C-o> to enter another command, more about this here
  5. and p to paste

  • Thank you for your comment @DBenKnoble, this answer now reflects entering insert mode
  • @Eternal21 step 3 shows a way to enter the new line

Hope this helps. Thank you for the feedback.

    With yapG you arent in insert mode, so just follow with p. And in insert mode, <C-r>" works as well – D. Ben Knoble Jun 30 '18 at 1:14

    I accepted your answer as solution. One question though, after I press 'G' I end up on the closing bracket of the first function, so when I paste the new function I end up with no empty line between the two functions. What's the fastest way to get that line in there? For now I end up doing this: yapGo<Esc>p – Eternal21 Jun 30 '18 at 19:58
