v:lnum doesn't return the current line number in my gvim, I modified the script a bit, this way :


if l:ccol != l:fcol
  call cursor(line('.'), l:fcol)
  call cursor(line('.'), l:hcol)


There is a similar function in smartmove.vim ( that also takes into account the line wrapping and will do g0/g^ on wrapped lines. The End key is mapped in a similar way.

You can install Home/End keys with :call smartmove#MapHomeEnd() or adapt the code in smartmove#MapHomeEnd() for other keys.
