Once again, the idea of these short lines is to have the basic functionality in vim – if there is the time to set up a properly vimrc with tens of lines, I could also copy mine over. But if you just need to do some quick things these lines are useful.
If anyone has other really helpful lines please leave a comment (and explain the lines with a few words, just as above) – but in case such “helpful” lines take more than one line it s already too much. For postinbg source code in the comment section, please read How do I post source code?.
