Just When You Think You Know Everything
People laugh at you. The humble amongst us are always hungry for knowledge and these VIM Tips are full of nuggets. The tips for using buffers and ftp were particularly interesting to me.
I'll confess to having had a play with the other editor recently. I was mainly trying to find out what all of the fuss was about. After my noodling about I can see why it was a much better choice than vi all those years ago when I first started using computers in anger. But in the meantime VIM has bridged the functionality gap to such an extent that choosing between the two is largely a matter of preference. As I've been using :wq! and ZZ for more years than I care to count I'll be sticking with "The Best Editor in the World" thanks very much.
