An old IT ninja learns new Unix tricks
It was with some fascination that I happened across Ian Langworth’s “VIM after 11 years” post last week. As a vi/vim user for more than 20 years, I wasn’t expecting to learn much. But to my surprise, Langworth revealed many features and tweaks I never would’ve sought out on my own because — well, why would I? My vim reflexes have been built up like calluses over decades, long before many of these features and plug-ins were a glimmer in anyone’s eye.
