I would like to sort it to this:

I'm able to do this with with for example :sor! n /\(^[0-9]*$\|=.*\)/ r. However, for some reason, :sor! n /\(^[0-9]+$\|=.*\)/ r does not work. Why is that so? + should mean one or more numbers in my example?

 :sor! n /\(^[0-9]\+$\|=.*\)/ r

You were very close. You just missed a '\' before '+'.

  • Oh, I thought that if * does not need to be escaped, then there is no need to escape + either. Thanks!
