This question already has an answer here:
How can I select a bunch of text and comment it all out?
Currently I go to the first line, go to insert mode then type
# left-arrowdown-arrow and then I repeat that sequence, perhaps saving a few keystrokes by using the
. repeat feature to do each line.
Is there anyway I could (for instance) select either multiple lines in visual mode or by using a range of lines and an ex ('colon') command and for that range comment out all the lines with a
# to make them a "block comment".
The ability to quickly 'de-comment' (remove the
#'s) for a block comment would also be nice.
