Talk:Text processing

Back to Category

I think that "text processing" is too general of a title. Almost anything we do in Vim could be considered "processing" text. I think a better title for this category would be "text formatting" or something similar. We could put any autoformat tips, and tips such as the current one, into it. But, tips on regular expressions, moving paragraphs around, even starting a new line of text using O, would not go here.

Of course if other people feel differently that's fine. Any thoughts?

The idea was to create a category for text/word processing, like writing a letter, resume etc., opposed to writing programs, emails, etc.
Basicly, stuff most people do in "proper" text processing tool like MS Word, OpenOffice.org, WordPerfect, etc.

"Text formatting" would be a bit narrow IMO...

Some other ideas for a clearer title would be something like "Word processing" or "Document creation".

I don't know, I think it would be better to have a bunch of smaller categories for that. We have Category:Email, for example (though that might be a bad example...I'm a little confused as to what is supposed to go in the email category). I just see this category becoming a catch-all like Category:Usage was at one point (and even is now to some extent) that won't be very useful. I suppose, however, that we could use categories like this to break down Category:Usage to make THAT category more manageable.
