Thanks for this nice piece of code. Two comments:

1) You're using the following to delete the contents of the scratch
I suppose you meant %%d _ (aka "black hole register". Without the
space between d and _ you are not using the _ register, check
out :registers).

2) I was searching for something like that because I wanted to edit
tables 'inline' and make use of the csv plugin in

I've seen that you have also worked based on that tip to produce

Maybe you want to consider merging both scripts into a new "edit
inline tables" script? With "inline table" I mean a 'csv fragment'
surrounded by 'normal' (non-structured) text.

  VIM question - the "-o" command line option         

Author: Kenny McCormack
Date: May 13, 2010 08:16

I don't think the "-o" (or "-O") command line option works either as it
should or as it is documented. I've often wondered if this is consider
"working as designed", or just a "known bug" (that no one has ever
chosen to spend any time working on) or "what"...

The help file says:

--- Cut Here ---
-o[N] Open N windows, split horizontally. If [N] is not given,
one window is opened for every file given as argument. If
there is not enough room, only the first few files get a
window. If there are more windows than arguments, the last
few windows will be editing an empty file.
{not in Vi}

-O[N] Open N windows, split vertically. Otherwise it's like -o.
If both the -o and the -O option are given, the last one on
the command line determines how the windows will be split.
{not in Vi}

Want McCain US slave to ISRAEL ?

Why is McCAIN too obsequious TO ISRAEL ?

Why we must process 5 Israeli Hebrews ? =

Why we must process 5 Israeli Hebrews ,
arrested by the Police at 2001, September, 11 , on NYC ?

While each of them had a new last photography of himself, on the
wich he was very very happy,
on the background of WTC 2 towers falling down ?

*) Because it can be they murdered 3,000 people of America,
on the World Trade Center of America ..

*) Because it can be they were operating,
according to the Same Satanic Center,
Which programmed also the missile against Pentagon.
After a month, they escaped into Israel, to searching protection !

vim has i pretty good support of different keyboards.

My default keyboard is german, for Ancient Greek support I add to
my .vimrc:

set keymap+=greek_utf-8
set imi=0 ims=0 "start with a additional keymap
set but inactive

You can find a supported keympas and their names in the
/usr/share/vim/vim72/keympas folder.

Now vim will start with you default keymappings, in my case utf8
german. If you press in insert (!) mode, vim will switch to
the ancient greek keyboard. You can edit these keymaps to your
liking, the ancient greek keyboard defaults to the Latex-Mappings.

How would the following look like if this should work:

The object is to delete all occurrences of one number/word pr. line in the first window in the file
loaded in the next window


create _thisBuff // I assume that a buffer has to be created

markword (_thisBuff) // now the word at the cursor should be marked, and then pasted to the

nextwindow row 1 col 1 // then go to next window upper left corner

find (get _thisBuff) // then the word marked in the previous window should be search for in the new
window (in this example it's just one number at the beginning of the line so there's no need to
specify ''Whole word' or 'Ignore case', or anything like that)

if exist (find) markword delline // and if the word is found the this line should be deleted - if not
exist then do nothing

next window down // then return to the first window and go down one row

// and all this should then repeat as long as there's a next line in the new file to mark a word to find
in the next window

  vim: "XSMP opening connection"         

Author: Spiros Bousbouras
Date: Sep 15, 2008 14:55

I tried starting vim a little while ago and nothing
happened. I pressed Ctrl-C and it started normally. So I
tried again with
vim -u NONE -V90 file
and got
XSMP opening connection
after which nothing happened. I pressed Ctrl-C and got
XSMP SmcOpenConnection failed: IO error occured opening
connectionOpening the X display failed
Opening the X display took 1 msecOpening the X display took 4 msec
Interrupt: Press ENTER or type command to continue
and then it started normally.
I also tried
DISPLAY= vim -u NONE -V90 file
but it didn't make any difference.

I'm working with vi editor to modify some configuration files of an

from a file, like .netrc file for ftp application.

Thank you

The numeric codes for everything above 127.

Do you know whether
