Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome, welkomEdit

Welcome to the Vim Tips wiki! We hope you can help improve the articles by fixing typos, adding comments (at the bottom of each tip page), rewriting tips, joining in discussions, or making any other improvements.

Be sure to visit the community portal for information about our site, with links to how to pages.

Keep an eye on the recent changes page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or signed-in) are listed. Bookmark it, maybe.

If you want to get involved, check out our Vim Tips Wiki:Policy. We'd like you to join the mailing list.



Hi lpb612! Thanks for the great work on Working with CSV files. You might like to create your user page (can be very simple, perhaps just say how long you've used Vim – see Special:Listusers for some ideas). You are welcome to put any to-do or other notes related to Vim or the wiki under your user page. --JohnBeckett 23:52, 16 July 2008 (UTC)


Please format your user page however you like, but FYI you could do it like this:

Pages I have contributed in:

The last two lines are alternatives -- see the wikitext by editing the page.

Similarly, keep the Comments section if you want, but we normally don't have that on a user page. It is standard wiki practice for comments about a user, or their user page, or their edits, to be conducted on the talk (discussion) page for that user (as I am doing here). It's generally inadvisable to edit a user's page unless required to remove a problem (e.g. possible spam or libel, or other outrageous comments, particularly if directed at some other person). --JohnBeckett 08:24, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the comment. I will try to follow these common practices. I really need to find time to read the tutorial about editing wikia pages and the rules here. But I am learning a lot from you already. --Lpb612 13:46, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

CSV enhancementsEdit

You might like to look at the CSV tip (and its talk page) to see two major enhancements: floating point sorting and ability to specify the delimiter. It's amazing how well the whole thing works! --JohnBeckett 07:02, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
