Some handy vim commands

Posted on June 20, 2007 in Vim

I want to have them in one place so i write them down here:

:g/^#/d Delete all lines that begins with #

:g/^$/d Delete all lines that are empty and contain no tabs

:g/^\s*$/d Delete all lines that are empty

:%s/$/{ctrl-V}{CR}/g Inserts blank line between lines

:%s/{TAB}*$// Strip tabs at end of line

:g/<pattern>/t$ Copy every line which matches pattern to the end of the file

5>> indent 5 lines from line where cursor stands, handy because you dont need to enter visual mode

And yes, {ctrl-V},{CR} and {TAB} means you have to press it, not to type it.
