i am searching for a substitution command in vim for removing every semicolon in a file, if it is the last character of the line.
i already found this command, which toggles a semicolon at the end of the line:
nnoremap ;; :s/\v(.)$/\=submatch(1)==';' ? '' : submatch(1).';'<CR>
Can someone help me out here?
- the command i was searching for, was part of a little greater cleanup i want to do after saving a file. the complete solution looks like that
