Re: What are your favorite mappings, tips & tricks?
Someone suggested I start a "Sticky" topic with this issue. I thought it was a great idea!
I only use a couple of mappings in my .viemurc, but I wouldn't want to do without them:
cnoremap <c-n> <down>
cnoremap <c-p> <up>
This makes Ctrl-N and Ctrl-P act as arrows to move around history in the command line, that is, when typing a '/' or '?' search or a ':' ex command.
I guess I'm not much for customizing my apps. Incidentally, I think that's one of the reasons I love vi/vim editing so much: it's a huge amount of power out-of-the-box!
My favorite usage tricks are described in my already well-known "Why vi/vim" article:
"Why, oh WHY, do those nutheads use vi?" -- http://www.viemu.com/a-why-vi-vim.html
Thanks for sharing your tricks!
