I initially posted a question assuming there was something to type that would signal append other than just using upper-case letters. How does one append to the clipboard register in vim?
Unfortunately, this resulted in finding out the impossibility of that type of solution, so I decided to reword the question.
I was given many a reference to this post vim append to clipboard, which I don't understand. In that post they use
my_expression, what does that refer to? Does it refer to the letter I want to set as
+? If so, would I use the capital version?
My question boils down to: I want a thorough description of what to do to set clipboard register to a different name so it can be appended using the capital form. Answers have been copied and pasted with little explanation.
DO NOT PASTE
let @+ .= my_expression here and call it a day.
If needed here is my vim version:
VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4 (2013 Aug 10, compiled Jan 2 2014 19:39:59) Huge version with GTK2 GUI.
