I am working on RHEL 4es. I use vi editor for text editing. We have long length data files. To view the file without wrapping i give the command ' set nowrap ' everytime.
Typing this lengthy command everytime is boring. Is there any short cut to cut short this command.
Some times i open the files with vimdiff command. But i was told that this command may currupt the file.
Is it true? Kindly help me.
editing the .vimrc will permanently open all the files with nowrap. But i dont want this. i want a short cut at vi editor i.e., at : instead of typing the lengthy set nowrap command i want to type a simple word... like :sn.
after mapping its working superbly...but when i exit the vi editor...its gone... again i have to map it when i enter freshly into the vi editor... Guide me to map the key permanently.... or some other hint... or shortcut..
