Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Shift + k is used to open the man page under the cursor. if you want to execute the command instead of opening the man page use the following functions.

"This function used to get the current cursor word and execute that command
Code:
                fu ExecuteCommand()
                let l:Command = expand("<cword>")
                execute "!" . l:Command
                endfu

"This function used to get the current cursor line and execute that command
Code:
                fu ExecuteCommandLine()
                let l:Command = getline(line("."))
                execute "!" . l:Command
                endfu

Note:
<cword> is replaced with the word under the cursor (like |star|)
<cWORD> is replaced with the WORD under the cursor (see WORD|)

wq with dot

Be very careful when you quit with editing some file. I use the following ...
Code:
:wq

But ones one little dot came between ...
Code:
:.wq

Whot does it mean? It saves only the line where the cursor was at that moment.

That time I lost more than 12000 lines and about 2 hours and a half work. Only because a finger slides over a dot.

Great point, but iit should only allow it if you force a write with:

Code:
:.wq!

But it's easily done, especially if saving a read-only file, where you have to use ! anyway.

Hi,
I am using VIM 7.1 version on my Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy heron). I am irritated to see the auto matching cursor whenever it comes across parantheses, brackets and braces while editing. I used ':set noshowmatch', but no use. What other options are available for me?
