Thanks all, I'll check out how to configure my mailer with Google Groups for this list. > I've found it a very helpful list and I've learnt a lot being > subscribed to it despite being a +10yr user of vim. Even Bram Molenaar > posts there occasionally. Nice to know that long-term users parade around in the list. It then, is much like this one, and a few others that I am on. Before I foray into configuring my email program to work with Google Groups, I have one more (simple, I think) question regarding Vim. (I couldn't come up with the proper Gooliage): I'd like to create a keyboard map so instead of doing: - _dd (I believe the underscore is referred to as 'blackhole') I can do: - CTRL-whatever I have a lot of operations that consist of this: - p - j - $ - i - <CR> - ^[ - 3j - i - <TAB><CR> - ^[ - 3dd (not necessarily in that order)...and want an easier way to to do both 'dd' and 'd$' without wrecking the clipboard which I have saved a yank to. fwiw, the box I'm doing this work on is a jail (with both v4 and v6!) under: :! uname -a [No write since last change] FreeBSD name.eagle.ca 7.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE #0: Fri May 1 08:49:13 UTC 2009 r...@walker.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386 Cheers, Steve
