vi tips & tricks
Stuff collected from different places. Majority of this came from the one Slashdot discussion. I don't know if there is something like Did you know... welcome screens (fortune might be, I'll have to check) but from this stuff I would like to write it at some point.
All your comments, criticisms and a like please send me on my e-mail address!
Enabling spell checking
To enable spell checking in vi just execute the following command:
This will enable spell checking of English language. You can also ask for suggestions. Just place cursor on misspelled word and press z=. You'll be provided with a list of suggestions you can select from.
Installing spell files
vi, at least in Fedora, comes without any spell checking dictionary except for English. In order to be able to spell check Croatian and other languages you have to run vi as a root and then try to enable spell checking in a language you need, e.g. for Croatian:
:setlocal spell spelllang=hr_HR
vi will then ask you if you wish to download dictionaries for hr language and guide you through the installation process, which is very simple.
