Hi, my name is Martin, a.k.a. Carpetsmoker. If you are wondering if I "really smoke carpets" then the answer is YES! (Ask a stupid question...). I added lots of userboxes to my wikipedia user page on a boring Sunday morning, so if you want to know more about me look there.
I first used vim in about 2002/2003 on Mandrake Linux, and I absolutely hated it, I then tried Emacs, and hated it even more ... So, I used vim, not because I liked it but because I hated it less. Later on I started hating it less and less, and then I actually started to liking it, and now I'm here ...
Notes and stuffEdit
Some notes for my own convenience so I don't forget...
Test and merge file vim file associations tips for Windows when I'm on a Windows machine, related pages :
- Associate files with no extension to Vim under Windows
- Open files with existing Gvim window in Windows
- Open files in multiple tabs using the Windows Context Menu
- Launch files in new tabs under Windows
- Add open-in-tabs context menu for Windows
These tips all use aspell or ispell, which is sort of deprecated since Vim now has it's own spell checking support.
Nonetheless, some people may prefer this, so these tips should be merged to one tip, here they are:
- Use integrated spell checking
- Using Ispell on a highlighted region
- Spell check of word below cursor
- A rough mapping to spellcheck the buffer
- Check spelling for different languages
- Auto spelling correction using abbreviations
- Spelling suggestions anywhere, even in console mode
Tips I came across that look very useful, but for which I haven't yet had time to review/fix them:
