Text Objects

  • All text objects may be defined with i to exclude the bounding characters or a to include the bounding characters. For example, di( will delete everything within the parentheses and da( will delete the parentheses and everything within them.
    m<char> allows you to define any arbitrary <char> as the delimiter. For example, vim* will select (in visual mode) text between two * characters.
  • Comment text object c will select lines that start with single-line comments (//, #, --) or block comments (/* */, <!-- -->). Comment text object C will select multiple contiguous lines of single-line comments.

Ctrl Commands

    Vrapper defines operations for some Ctrl keys. However, in all cases, if you have an Eclipse shortcut bound to that Ctrl key it will always perform the Eclipse operation. You have to unbind all instances of that Ctrl key from Eclipse for any of the following Vrapper bindings to work.

Quirks (incompatibilities with Vim)

    Some commands are directly bound to Eclipse actions so they behave a little differently than in Vim. They are:
    • zo
    • zR
    • zc
    • zM
    • <C-F>
    • <C-B>
    • <C-Y>
    • <C-E>
    • <C-I>
    • <C-O>
    • <C-N>
    • <C-P>
