I have a function that changes the 6th caracter of a line to a dollar symbol (
I want it to be performed on several lines, so I naively did a "while" loop using a counter (as shown under).
But I have the feeling that there must be a much simpler, more "vim-esque" way to do that -- my function seems a bit complicated for such a simple task. Maybe I'm wrong, but I would appreciate any simplification/comments.
My current function is :
function! DollarSplit(nlines) let current_pos = getpos(".") let a:count = 0 while a:count < a:nlines normal! 6|r$j a:count += 1 endwhile call setpos(".", current_pos) endfunction
