Some of the things I do regularly:
- vi/emacs: filter parts of the edit buffer through commands (perl
one liners, tools like fmt(1), specialized little tools for
building indexes, cross-references, and the like ...)
- vi/emacs: map a key to the compile command (or the respective
vi macro) to run Makefile entries that do compilation, testing,
publishing to web sites, ...
- emacs: use the shell mode to record all your activities,
e.g., when working as root on other's machines, or when doing
a new installation routine, ...
- vi/emacs: make the editor put in templates for common tasks
- vim/emacs: develop your own, intelligent (for you) syntax colouring scheme
- emacs: use the editor as shell substitution on platforms where
you have no convenient shell (command line history, ...)
