Repeat (and fix) last commandPosted: May 26, 2011
How many times have you run a command but forgot to add sudo at the beginning? How many times did you open vim instead of gvim? All that has an easy fix, instead of pressing up-left-left-left-left-left… (almost like a Konami code, isn’t it?) just use !!.
!! expands to the previous command, so for example “vim foo”, then “g!!” will execute “gvim foo”.
Another common problem, you mistype vim for vmi (hey, it may be a common problem if you’re dyslexic). Just type fc, short for fix command, to open the last command in your configured editor. Fix it (lxp, bonus points if anyone understand this :D) then write and save. The fixed command will be executed.
