UNSOLVED QUESTIONS
(1)I saw it here http://rayninfo.co.uk/vimtips.html
There should be documentation abut using \_ in search query .

(2)How can I copy contents from text file open in vi to clipboard so that I can paste it in another application like gedit ?
Here selecting text in vi using mouse then middle click in gedit does not help.I have seen.
What do you suggest ?

Try highlight + ctl-c to copy or see if your terminal menu includes a copy option

Tip
(1) If you open vi in gnome-terminal then you can select text(using mouse) & right click to get copy option or use ctrl+shift+c . Now you can paste it in any application as content is in clipboard.

(2) In xterm you can select using mouse then it gets into selection buffer . Content can be pasted into other application ( like gedit ) using middle click.

(3)To sort line 2 to 10 run
:2,10!sort
Remove duplicate line in whole file
:%!uniq
