|shl||ciaranm: I know, been a pain in the ass for a long time ;)|
ciaranm: if you didn't move it, can you mail/dcc me a copy?
|ciaranm||the google will find it... it got posted to some archived mailing lists|
|ecd|choop||hey, quick newbie question|
from vim, i can't launch :vimtutor
and i just want to concatenate 2 lines into one
|shl||ciaranm: google's answers are not useful. can you give me some keywords that will help me track it down?|
|ciaranm||your guess is as good as mine|
|shl||ciaranm: you went sour on gentoo or something?|
|ciaranm||heh. not exactly. long story|
|setog3||I am trying to use qt and vim, and want completion for qt .. so I do a tags file with all in /usr/include/qt/ .. but don't works .. I can't get the completion|
on osx, how do i call gvim from terminal.app ?
just saying gvim doesn't appear to do it
|Knekk||davidfetter: what error?|
|MinceR||davidfetter: maybe specifying the full path of gvim will do it|
|davidfetter||-bash: gvim: command not found|
|Knekk||davidfetter: yeah depends where you installed it|
|davidfetter||it's in Applications|
<-- os/x n00b
|softdrink||can i make vim stop highlighting matching parens, or even better, only highlight them for about a second? mine currently keeps them highlighted when i'm over one|
softdrink: I don't know about setting it to 1 second. vim6 did that, dunno how it works with vim7
|rcbarnes||is there a way to have an instance of a shell (or whatever) running in only a tab or a window or something inside vim so I can have text editing at the same time?|
|shl||rcbarnes: no. read :help|
rcbarnes: no. read :help design-not
rcbarnes: (you don't need to read the entire help ;) )
vimgor: shell is <reply> No, you cannot run a shell within vim. Read :help design-not if you want to know why.
|vimgor||shl: The operation succeeded.|
|action||rcbarnes reads the indicated section|
|rcbarnes||reads the indicated section|
|neuro_damage||let's say i want to replace things in all the .java files i have open|
how would I do this?
|quartlo||neuro_damage, last time I asked that question, the response was use sed/awk. While I respect the idea of 'right tool for the job', I believe you want to know how to do this in vim and vim alone. :h bufdo should point you in the right direction|
