The NeoVintageous help pages ‚Äč

Chris O'Dowd in the IT Crowd (2006)

Vim's help pages are distributed unmodified in NeoVintageous and are accessed in the same way as Vim.

vim
:help

The help pages are provided unmodified so it's important to remember when using them that NeoVintageous may not yet implement that particular feature. Some differences are documented own help page.

vim
:help neovintageous

Additionally, it's possible to jump to a specific help tag.

vim
:help {subject}

Here are some examples:

vim
:help c
:help w
:help ^
:help $
:help aw
:help ctrl-w_s
:help operator
:help word-motions
:help text-objects

Vim help pages for some of the ported plugins are also provided unmodified.

vim
:help abolish
:help commentary
:help sneak
:help surround
:help unimpaired

The most valuable command inside the help pages is the jump to tag command. Position the cursor on a tag (e.g. |bars|) and hit CTRL-].

The other two useful commands are jump back and jump forward, CTRL-O and CTRL-I respectively.

Lastly, the shorthand for :help is :h. In Vim this is usually written as :h[elp]. The square brackets indicate the optional part of the ex command.

I hope this has been helpful. Take it easy, my friends.
