Vim tip: reuse gVim instance
Posted: May 14, 2010 Filed under: Vim Tips
|/* Usual rant about Vim being great */, /* usual rant about everything else being plain awful */. /* Comment stating that if you don’t use Vim then you suck */. And now, one more reason to use gVim: instance reuse! Yes, you can save many many KB or RAM by using –remote-tab-silent when openning a document in gVim. (clearly this would have been “many many GB of RAM” if we were talking about emacs).
If you don’t like adding –remote-tab-silent each and every time you use gVim to open a file, then you are a lazy bum and I congratulate you. Define an alias in your bashrc to save precious typing microseconds too.
