If you have search for vim tips at here, you may remember to go to the desire line while opening file with vim is like this

vim hello.c +12

And while edit with vim, to move to desire line, type the line number and press shift g or G. With the search forward and backward tips examples shows here.

Yesterday, I accidentally discover that to move to a desire line while edit with vim, can be done by this

:12

As I press escape and colon more often than pressing shift g, goto a line with :<line number&mt; is more comfortable for me.

  1. 12gg works well too.

  2. Yes it works, good tip

  3. 12% works for relative goto percentage (start typing 12 and press % and will be automatically positioned at 12%)

    useful for large logs

  4. You need to be a part of a contest for one of the most useful websites on the internet.
    I’m going to highly recommend this blog!

  5. Unlike other MMOs, companions in SWTOR are more than just canon fodder: They’re smart, helping you out when you need it.

    The Diablo 3 site released this official FAQ regarding the
    open beta ‘stress test’:. That means we’ll be exposed to world Pv – P,
    2 new territories, four new instances, and 500 new quests we didn’t see in the previous phases.

  6. Excellent post. I will be going through many of
    these issues as well..
