"In the previous installment, I took a look at the basics of
editing, movement, searching and replacing, and copy and pasting
text. That is enough to get most people by if they're just using
Vim for quick and dirty text edits, etc. But that doesn't even
begin to scrape the surface of what Vim can do! Remember that
learning Vim is not a sprint, it's a marathon! But you can go at
your own pace and stop along the route at any time to admire the
scenery. Even though I'll try to cover as much as possible in each
guide, it is impossible to cover all that Vim is capable of in a
handful of articles. This isn't meant to be a wholly comprehensive
guide, but a set of starting points for users to get oriented with
Vim and become more and more productive.
"If learning Vim seems like hard work at first, rest assured
that in the long run it will save you work. One of the ways that
Vim saves you work is with word completion. Obviously, this is very
useful for developers and system administrators when editing code
or configuration files."
