The wonderful world of vim

July 20, 2010

(This article was first published on Xi'an's Og » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

When searching for a way to recover control carriage return symbols ^M into genuine ones (under vim), I found this handy page of vim tips. And then saw that the enthusiastic author had even a blog about vim! Obviously, this post will be meaningless for all readers not aware of the joys of the vim editor, so let me stress that “vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems. vim is distributed free as charityware. If you find vim a useful addition to your life please consider helping needy children in Uganda.” vim has now reached version 7.3a [beta]
