|xelados||Does it matter that I'm using xterm and regular vim as opposed to gvim?|
|xinming_||How to run command once within vi please?|
currently, we have to type :!
Is there other short cut?
|xelados||xinming_: I don't believe there is.|
|LeoNerd||How much shorter did you want?|
|xelados||Oh neat, gvim doesn'|
t look bad
|xinming_||one key stroke. :-P|
|Ori_B||xinming_: feel free to remap it?|
|elif||xinming_: if you know the command to run always make a map of if :nmap <something> :!cmd|
in the final
|Ori_B||even if you don't, :nmap c :!|
that works, leaves you at the prompt to type the command
(but c is, of course, already used)
|xelados||Aha. I think I figured out why I couldn't copy from vim to other programs. Apparently running vim as gvim or through screen makes it able to do that.|
Any ideas why?
|elif||xelados: you're trying to copy from the selection on screen ?|
|k1||If I have a file with the permissions set to 464 and me as owner and a group which I'm part of but isn't my primary group, vim opens it as readonly ... isn't that a bug?|
elif: Regular vim in xterm doesn't seem to be able to do that. It beeps at me when I try to use the + or * registers.
|LeoNerd||Does it have +xterm_clipboard support?|
|xelados||LeoNerd: Will 'vim -v' tell me?|
|LeoNerd||:version does anyway.|
|LeoNerd||Or vim --version|
|LeoNerd||Hrm... echo $DISPLAY|
Oh.. does it also have +x11 ?
|elif||xelados: Here I select from my terminal the lines with the mouse and a clipboard running on my wm holds the selection... the bitter thing on that is that i'm not able to further select text out of screen....|
|xelados||Hmm, I'm able to do the same.|
|LeoNerd||Ah.. is this via screen ?|
|LeoNerd||Or plain xterm => vim ?|
|xelados||plain xterm => vim|
I can do it with ease using screen or gvim
