Vim: writing nonconsecutive groups of lines to another file.


kernel 2.6.21.5, slackware 12.0
vim 7.1

Hi:
To export a group of consecutive lines to another file, I usually do ':w <file_name>'. But suppose the lines are not consecutive like I want to write lines 4-6, 31-45 to another file. Will the :w command do? Or I need another command?

Please tell me. When you yank, you lose the previous contents of the buffer?


EDIT: I've just tried and it does not keep it, it seems.
EDIT 2: I'll see if I have a clipboard. In the link I saw **y and **p.
