vim has most of the features you're asking for:
  • Autoindent: :set smartindent will turn it on
  • Block cut and paste: there are SEVERAL command sequences for this. You could:
    • position the cursor at the start of the block press ma (set a mark named a at this line)
    • move to some other line press y'a (yank / copy from this line to mark a) or d'a (delete / cut from this line to mark a)
    • then move to the line you want insert those copied or cut lines and press p (paste).
    as for between other apps, copy or cutting goes to the windows clipboard and mouse highlighting will copy to the X buffer.
  • gvim supports this:
    • CTRL-W N splits the current window horizontally. (think: Control Window New)
    • CTRL-W J moves the focus to the window below
    • CTRL-W K moves the focus to the window above
    • :q (or another exit command) will close the current window
    • you can cut / paste between any of the windows
  • Jump to specific line number:
    • :(number)
    • :.+10 ten lines below the current one
    • :$ last line of the file
    • :$-5 5 lines before last line of file
  • Umm...regex find and replace. hello? :) you can also have it prompt per each replacment by adding c after the closing / on the replacement
A very large part of the appeal for me is that my hands never leave the home keys regardless of the task I'm performing. I even mapped the escape key to ALT so that I didn't have to reach for it.


perl -l -e "eval pack('h*','072796e6470272f2c5f2c5166756279636b672');"
