Since I’m retraining my hands to type in qwerty rather than dvorak, I figure I’ll use this as a chance to kick some bad habits in Vim - my text editor of choice. Today’s lesson is “word navigation”.
Vim gives you several different ways to move the cursor. Word navigation lets you skip to the start and ends of words. The relevant keys (in normal mode):
wmoves the cursor to the start of the next word after the cursor
emoves the cursor to the next word-end after the cursor
bmoves the cursor to the previous word-start before the cursor
The capital-letter versions of these commands do the same thing, except treat whitespace as the only word separator rather than all punctuation.
