I first used Vim about 20 years ago and have used it as my default editor for both work and play for the last five. At work, I live within Vim and have reached the stage where I couldn’t tell you many of the commands, but my fingers know. But I’ve increasingly suspected there are better ways to do some editing jobs.
Last week I flicked through “Practical Vim” by Drew Neil and was immediately hooked on growing my Vim knowledge more holistically than learning about each command in isolation. By page 8, I’d discovered the
t command - how had I not discovered this command before?
