Hello Jim,

Unless you grew up in the Unix ecosystem using vi or vim early in your career you’ll find both of them have arcane methods of manipulating data.

Granted. It also took me a while to get used to it. But after becoming used to it, the arcane way to trigger functions with minimal typing proved to speed up editing considerably.

Patrik is a Unix guy so vi/vim come very naturally to him and more power to that, but for those of us that have to figure out the arcane methods used in those editors they are not very useful.

Well, everybody faces a beginning of something? :-)

Why not learn vim basics with some fun applied? https://vim-adventures.com :-)

:wq! PoC
