vim recording and execution macro 2019-06-16 12:27
Using macros to perform repetitive operations is a very efficient way. In this page I will show you how to use it.
Recently I am translating some English articles into Chinese. I need to enter two Chinese spaces at the beginning before I translate a paragraph. I plan to use macros to do this boring thing.
qain normal mode. "recording" will show in the bottom. This means you are recording macro and save it in "a" register
oto move cursor to next line.
- press Ctrl+v and
uto prepare input unicode character.
- the number of chinese space is
3000in unicode. then press 3000.
escto return normal mode, press
qto save current macro
After recording the macro successfully you can use
@<your_macro_name> in my case is
@a to execute the macro.
