vifm as my file manager (that's off topic here, i know, but keep reading) which allows me to edit filenames inside a
One issue i found myself annoyed at are numbered files where I want to keep leading zeros (e.g.
movie0001.webm). I can't get vim to format them properly.
I have a
vim buffer containing:
mov70.webm mov71.webm mov72.webm mov73.webm mov74.webm mov75.webm mov76.webm mov77.webm mov78.webm mov79.webm
And my cursor starts at the
m in the first line. I then do
VG to mark everything and
69<C-x> to transform it into:
mov1.webm mov2.webm mov3.webm mov4.webm mov5.webm mov6.webm mov7.webm mov8.webm mov9.webm mov10.webm
But i would really like to reach this instead:
mov01.webm mov02.webm mov03.webm mov04.webm mov05.webm mov06.webm mov07.webm mov08.webm mov09.webm mov10.webm
What i have tried
The problem with numbers with leading zeros is that
vim will treat them as
octal, therefore I changed
nrformats to an empty string:
Yet, that did not help. I have searched around in
:h nrformats without finding anything useful.
