comment How do I abort fc without executing the command?
@schily Depending on vim being installed is probably safe in most cases, and in this case the asker specifically said q! didn't work for them

comment Delete prefix and postfix for a http url using UNIX
@iamnewbie That's what "answer extracted from edit" means. You can post it yourself if you prefer, and accept your own answer, and I'll delete this version

comment How to use pipe to assign a variable
What does piping have to do with it? It sounds like you just want to assign the result of $x1+$x2 to a variable, and you somehow decided piping is the right way to do that

This doesn't explain why you'd get the error on a page with no flash, which is what the question is about

comment Edit columnar data in vim
This answer seems very limited if I'm reading it correctly. OP wants a method where pressing tab will space out to the same column as the previous line, and they probably want to do that repeatedly so they can easily enter many rows of data. You gave a way to jump to the end of a particular line when opening a file or to search for a particular string; neither of those is going to solve their problem.

comment What's the appropriate way to do “mv ./* ./subdirdir/”?
Do the answers on the other question not solve this problem? They seem perfect. Having good answers here isn't a reason not to close as a duplicate, we can always merge them
