To repeat the last command, "." can be used. The vi editor (and probably vim and gvim) supports according to "man vi": [Vi]i[sual][!] [+cmd] [file] Vi mode only. Edit a new file. Is this what you're searching for? Or do you refer to command lines where "@:" would repeat the last command (started with ":")? -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
