ViEmu/VS 2.1.24 with proper wrapscan and proper ‘<,'> marks with $

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

I have just built and uploaded ViEmu for Visual Studio 2.1.24. It fixes two problems:

  • Just reported yesterday, doing Vj$:'<,’>s/xyz/uvw/g would complain about ‘mark not set’. The reason was that the ‘$’ motion tried to set the ‘> end-of-visual-region marker in a position with column = infinite (that’s why doing $ and moving up and down goes to the last column of each line), and this type of marker didn’t work well. It’s now fixed.
  • Pending from a long time ago, a ‘/’ search from the last line of a file if this was empty would not find anything even if ‘wrapscan’ is set. This was a bug in the wrapping logic of the regular expression finder. It’s been fixed too.

You can download it here:

Remember you need to manually uninstall the previous version of ViEmu before installing this one.

Let me know how it works for you.

ViEmu/VS 2.1.23 addressing incompatibility with F# language with Visual Assist

Friday, March 14th, 2008

I have just built & uploaded ViEmu/VS 2.1.23, which fixes some problems with F# language files in the presence of Visual Assist. Yes, the VS ecosystem can be quite complex at times, but I always try to address incompatibilities as soon as possible.

You can download it from here:

Be sure to manually uninstall the previous version before installing this one. I have also promoted this build to the ‘official’ build downloaded from the main download page, so you might already have it if you downloaded it from there.
