I am very used to typing :su.
Would it be possible for VIM 7.4 to add a new compatibility flag to cpoptions
about the meaning of :su ?
suggested compatible flag: :su = :suspend, :s = :substitute
without the flag: :su = :substitute
Thanks for responding!
Why not just do something like::cab su substituteOr, if you want to make sure it's only after a colon (and not after every occurrence of "su"), look up getcmdpos() and only act if it's at the beginning of the command-line.Hope this helps,Salman
