CommentsEdit

As far as chopping lines goes, look at man fmt. Note that fmt chops lines to 72 (or is it 75?) by default. You can also set it using fmt flag.

Chop long lines from line 1 to 10

:1,10!fmt

Also, you can do visual block and use fmt! (this is the best part):

  • 'v' to start visual mode in command mode.
  • select a block
  • then type '!fmt<enter>'
