[assuming you are using vim6.0] as you are trying to learn vim, maybe you'd like to have that command explained. a) VIM has a system known as "registers" - you can think of it as quick buffers. registers are named by a single character which can be any of {a-zA-Z0-9.%#:-"} registers are accessed by "x - x beeing a valid register name (character) b) copy/paste/delete [y, p, d] can be optionally used with explicit source/destination register. you can yank a piece of test into register a and another text into b and then paste one of those texts whenever you want. c) + is the register refering to the clipboard (and therefore is a read-only register) now "+p should be clear ;) -- Best regards, Andreas mailto:[andreas--bolka--gmx--net]
