@dominant:

This questions is very easy to find if you used google (or whatever your search poison is). Shandak even gave the string (although a bit misspelled: vi quick reference).

Here's one link: http://www.uic.edu/depts/accc/softwa...ral/vi101.html

The short answer is: in command line mode press $

command mode

to end of line: $
to beginning of line: 0

a handy mode in vim for copy paste stuff is -visual-
there are three types

in command mode type "v" to start highlighting at cursor position, then move to what the end of what you want to copy and type "y"
"V" highlights complete lines
"<ctrl>v" highlights blocks, good for deleting an entire column

Thread-hijacking is a nasty habit. Split.
