( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think that your single window method is also going to be 9 keystrokes because you will need 2 up-arrows to get back to vim once you have run your script.

When given the choice I prefer to use a GUI editor, nedit, and I have set up my window manager so that focus follows the mouse without the need to click in a window. I also use emacs-style command history navigation as I was an Emacs user on Pr1mos long before I ever saw vi so am more familiar with it. My process is as follows:-

  • Start:
  • Edit script with nedit - (0 keystrokes)
  • Ctrl-S to save (2 keystrokes)
  • Move mouse over xterm window (1 wrist twitch)
  • Ctrl-P then Enter to re-run script (3 keystrokes)
  • Move mouse back to nedit window (1 wrist twitch)
  • GOTO Start

I make that 5 keystrokes and 2 wrist twitches.

Cheers,

JohnGG
