I want to have them in one place so i write them down here: :g/^#/d Delete all lines that begins with # :g/^$/d Delete all lines that are empty and contain no tabs :g/^\s*$/d Delete all lines that are empty :%s/$/{ctrl-V}{CR}/g Inserts blank line between lines :%s/{TAB}*$// Strip tabs at end of line :g/<pattern>/t$ Copy every line which matches pattern to the end of the file 5>> indent 5 lines from line where cursor stands, handy because you dont need to enter visual mode And yes, {ctrl-V},{CR} and {TAB} means you have to press it, not to type it.
