What is the scope of uppercase marks in vim? For example, this says:
Each file has a set of marks identified by lowercase letters (a-z). In addition there is a global set of marks identified by uppercase letters (A-Z) that identify a position within a particular file. For example, you may be editing ten files. Each file could have mark a, but only one file can have mark A.
For example, open your .vimrc, press mV, and close Vim. The next time you want to edit your .vimrc, just press 'V to open it.
I tried doing exactly this, setting a mark of
'V in my vimrc. I then closed the file, and opened up a new vim session with
$ vim --clean and pressed
'V and I got the following warning:
E20: Mark not set
So, if the uppercase marks can't be used in different vim sessions, what's the usage of it?
