VIM is a great editor

Ok, so I use [ VIM]. I used to use Emacs, but I guess the starting time was bothering me. Also, for small sysadmin edits I used VIM already and I was mixing key strokes from Emacs and VIM.

Here is a list of some usefull commands and settings from VIM:

Key Value
v Visual mode
gq Word wrap - make text, comments look nicer
CTRL-ww Switch window
 :bd Close buffer
 :ls List buffers
 :b1 - :bn Switch to buffer n - :b5 - switch to buffer 5
 :sbn Same as :b1 - :bn, but split
 :CTRL-w q Close current buffer/window
 :on Show only current buffer
 :mkvimrc file Save VIM settings
 :new file Open file in new window
 :split Split current window
set wildmode=longest Tab clompletion behaves more like in emacs or zsh. To get the full list, press CTRL-D
set hlsearch Hilight the search results
set incsearch Incrementally search (like emacs)
set guioptions-=T Remove toolbar
set guioptions-=m Remove menu
set guioptions+=f When running gvim, it will stay in foreground.

set selection=exclusive Only select up to (not including) the character where cursor is
CTRL-^ Switch buffer
CTRL-w CTRL-^ Split and switch
set path=/some/path/** Set internal find path to /some/path and all subdirectories
 :find file Search for file in the path
set smartcase Search with regards to case like in emacs (type small case will search case independent, type mixed case will search exact case) - Has to be used with :set ignorecase
CTRL-a Increment number under the cursor
CTRL-x Decrement number under the cursor
CTRL-] Jump to label
CTRL-T Go back
] CTRL-i Jump to file under cursor
 % Jump to matching {}, (), [], ...
