re: Emergency Vim Commands VIEW POST


I think this post will save many people trapped in vim!

Personally plain ":wq" has never bothered me except in case I was in a file I should not have edited in the first place (Or without the correct rights).

What issues does '!' solve?


It just forces the command without asking any more questions. I figured emergency responders don't want to be asked "are you sure?" after they have already issued a command :)
