What's a Language of the Month?

See the meta post for nominations. In short, during April, those who wish to participate should learn (at least the basics of) Vim, and use it to solve challenges. Participation is completely optional, but is anticipated to be fun!

Taken from the nomination post

Vim is a text editor that is meant to be an improvement over vi.

It's very concise - usual operations only take one or two ASCII bytes.

It's really good for string manipulation challenges ( is our second most popular tags), so you are going to find chances to use it very often.

### Resources

• Vim is backwards-compatible with V, so (almost) all Vim programs should work in V To address this point: The main differences are 1) 0 doesn't work (use | instead) and 2) a lot of commands are implicitly finished (ex commands and operators). So for example, the V program d is equivalent to the Vim program dd. – James Apr 2 at 18:34

• @cairdcoinheringaahing thankx! I was trying : codegolf homepage, and [Vim] as a search, but maybe not all answers/questions are tagged appropriately. Your answer is probably best. – Olivier Dulac Apr 7 at 16:21
