I was watching the video of Seven Habits of Highly Effective Text Editing. I am sucker for anything titled Seven Habits. I use Vim (Vi improved). Vi was the first editor I started with on Unix and since there were DOS versions available, kept using it. So when I saw a session on Vim on Google video, I decided to watch.
Here is Bram Moolenaar’s mantra
- Detect Inefficiency
- Find a quicker way
- Make it a habit
I think this applies to programming as well and probably many other areas.
