", or by starting vi with a single file or with no file argument at all, in which case you can load a file from inside the vi with the vi command ':n <file_to_load>'), you can cycle from a file to the next (and when you are at the last,you restart with the first and so on,like in a "ring") inside the editor with the command ':n#' (yes, ":n#") Cheers Bruno --- [Quipo ISP - Questa E-mail e' stata controllata dal programma Declude Virus] [Quipo ISP - This E-mail was scanned for viruses by Declude Virus] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
