Now that I’ve started playing with Vim (GVim to specific), I’ve discovered that lots of the GNU apps are linked up with Vim’s UI.
For example, when in Vim, you can search for text using the following command:
this takes you to the next match. Pressing ‘n’ will take you to the one after that and pressing ‘N’ will take you to the previous pattern.
The same applies when you’re using the man command, or aptitude too. Which suddenly makes using aptitude a lot easier for me. 🙂
I’m sure this has been documented somewhere, but it was a pleasant discovery for me.
