Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome, welkomEdit

Welcome to the Vim tips wiki! We hope you can make continuing contributions of articles and/or discussion and other improvements.

If you are new to Wikia or wikis in general, be sure to visit the "Community portal" for an outline of some of the main parts of the site and a link to pages that tell you how to edit.

Do keep an eye on the "recent changes" page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or signed-in) are listed. Bookmark it, maybe. (And help delete spam - unpleasant but a fact of life.)

Exchanging adjacent wordsEdit

First of all, sorry about the less-than-warm welcome on your tip's comment section! We want to make sure not to chase away meaningful contributors. Forgive my first impression of your tip - I thought it was just an overly complex solution to a simple problem. My first tip I posted here was one of those, and John did a much better job than I just did of pointing that out without being overly critical. You did a good job sticking with it and improving the tip to explain why I was wrong :-).

Anyway, great tip, keep up the good work! I actually didn't know about the %# atom until I read it.

No probs Fritzophrenic. I was actually requested by some people on #vim to submit the exchange thing. I've been around for a while (the second real script was submitted by me: script#5).

Me tooEdit

I'm getting slow – while I was wondering what kind of reference to your Exchanging adjacent words tip I could put in VimTip47, Fritzophrenic beat me to this page.

I decided to leave updating tip 47 until I can take a bit of time to try the solutions. If anyone wants to beat me to that, please do so.

Anyway, welcome also from me. --JohnBeckett 22:19, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
