I knew this site would teach me more about my beloved
vim :-) In posting a question/answer on how to delete large blocks without having to count lines, one of the answers taught me something I didn't know, that being relative line numbers along the lines of:
2 This is line 1 1 This is line 2 3 This is line 3, the current line. 1 This is line 4. 2 Line 5. 3 Line 6.
Now, if you wanted to delete lines 3, 4 and 5, you can simply add one to the relative line number (2) and use that to set the count, the command being
However, adding one seems a bit obscure so I was wondering if you could configure the line numbers in relative mode to be more like this:
2 This is line 1 1 This is line 2 3 1 This is line 3, the current line. 2 This is line 4. 3 Line 5. 4 Line 6.
That way you could simply transcribe the number into the command without having to think about it.
