Cut, Copy and Paste
Vim has support for these but uses different terms. This has implications for the shortcuts used.
To perform these operations in VIM we need to specify which text objects to operate on.
|l||One character at the current cursor position|
|w||The rest of the word from the current cursor position|
Lines are a special case. To operate on them, repeat the command e.g.
dd deletes the current line,
yy copies the current line.
To paste the text after the cursor press
p. To paste the text before the cursor press
xp- swaps two characters
dwwp- swaps two words
