Vim tips: Moving the cursor to a letter

Let’s face it, Vim is the best editor in the world, and from now on there’ll be a spot in the homepage with a “Vim Tip of the Week” (check the sidebar).

For the first one a basic tip: Moving to a letter

While in command mode press ‘f‘ and any other letter; the cursor will move to the first occurence of this letter. This can be combined with other commands and a number of repetitions (e.g. ‘d2f.‘, to delete until the second dot).

As a sidenote, I guess there must be a Word Press plugin to display the latest post in a category but I coudn’t find it, so I hacked my own: tip-of-the-week
