I read lots of files each day, and use file ~/.vims to remember the important ones.

function! MoshBookmark()
  redir >> ~/.vims
  echo
  echo strftime("%Y-%b-%d %a %H:%M")
  echo "cd ". $PWD
  echo "vim ". expand("%:p").':'.line('.')
  echo ' word='.expand("<cword>")
  echo ' cline='.getline('.')
  redir END
endfunction
:command! MoshBookmark :call MoshBookmark()

Vim's builtin viminfo loses bookmarks during multiple sessions of Vim, hence this solution is required.

CommentsEdit

 TO DO 
Explain when to use above function and what idea is.

To use the bookmark file, open it in Vim: vim ~/.vims

Press gF when cursor is on a filename.
