Re: s/// with arithmetic
- This reminds me of the problem I was having the other day, when I needed to
do floating point arithmetic with timestamps on a bus log file (Subject:
"Vimrun steals focus from other applications"). (OK, I admit that was a
shameless ploy to attract attention to a post that appears to have been
overlooked...) Seriously, however, Vim is the most powerful tool I have ever
used for transforming text files from one shape to another. While it is
possible to come up with many workarounds for both floating point and
hexadecimal numbers (e.g., viml functions, perl, python interfaces, etc...),
is not the processing of text files containing both float and hex format
numbers common enough to warrant inclusion of code for handling both in the
viml interpreter? Just a thought... I know it's been mentioned before.

Thanks a lot Gary. That thread was very useful. Though it didn't have
a straight answer, I took clue from it and finally this solved my
where Nr2Hex is an example function given in h: eval-examples (eval.txt)
Thanks a lot guys for the help
