Assume I have a text file containing some strings:
string_g string_r string_qqwer string_p string_f string_3qw string_e string_qw
And I need to insert increasing or decreasing numbers before the strings:
001 string_g 002 string_r 003 string_qqwer 004 string_p 005 string_f 006 string_3qw 007 string_e 008 string_qw
Just to avoid confusion:
I do not want line numbers to be displayed. I know how that works. What I want is an actual number at the beginning of each string within the text.
Is there a way to do this automatically with
I can mark the beginning of each string with CTRL-V then type : to enter the execute mode, which will allow me to execute command on the selection via
:'<,'> but I’m stuck there.
