I need to add " /tmp/work" at the end of each line.
I tried this
:%s/$/" /tmp/work"

and this
:%s/$/\ /tmp/work\/
There are a couple of ways to fix this. First, remember that the / between tmp and work is seen as a separator. So you can use
:%s/$/ \/tmp\/work\//

or you could change the separator like this:

"%s:$: /tmp/work/:

Both of these options will change the file to

cp file1 /tmp/work/
cp file2 /tmp/work/
cp file3 /tmp/work/

compares three versions of a file, and prints disagreeing ranges of text flagged with these codes: all three files differ file1 is different file2 is different file3 is different The type of change required to convert a given range of a given file to some other is indicated in one of these ways: Text is to be appended after line number n1 in file f, where f = or Text is to be changed in the range line n1 through line n2. If n1 = n2, the range can be abbreviated to n1. The original contents of the range follows immediately after a indication. When the contents of two files are identical, the contents of the lower-numbered file is suppressed. Produces a script for the editor that can be used to incorporate into file1 all changes between file2 and file3 (see ed(1)); i.e., the changes that normally would be flagged and Produces a script to incorporate only changes flagged Produces a script to incorporate only changes flagged Produces a script that will incorporate all changes between file2 and file3, but treat overlapping changes (that is, changes that would be flagged with in normal listing) differently. The overlapping lines in both files will be inserted by the edit script bracketed by and lines. Produces a script that will incorporate only changes flagged , but treat these changes in the manner of option. The following command applies the resulting script to file1. EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
