vi commands

VI is an excellent text editor, I use it all the time when I’m logged into a server via Putty.

I’m more used to doing it in windows though, and recently I’ve been spending more time using a mac. The keyboard shortcuts are a bit different, or there are just less keys on this mac keyboard, so I’ve had to lookup a list of commands so I can type faster in vi!

So here’s a link to a page listing loads of vi commands:

I’ll probably get around to making a page on the blog somewhere that’s bit more concise than that page, as it’s quite long, but it’s still very useful and it has examples as well as the actual commands
