vim tips and tricks
When you copy and cut stuff, it gets saved to registers. You can pull stuff from those registers at a later time.
:reg - show named registers and what's in them "5p - paste what's in register "5
You can also record a whole series of edits to a register, and then apply them over and over.
qk - records edits into register k (q again to stop recording) @k - execute recorded edits (macro) @@ - repeat last one 5@@ - repeat 5 times "kp - print macro k (e.g., to edit or add to .vimrc) "kd - replace register k with what cursor is on
