Vim has a wonderful
:read (or short:
:r) command that allows you to grab the contents of another file and paste it into the contents of the current editing session:
For instance, let's say we have a file called
homework.txt in a user's home directory, and we want to add its contents to the file we are currently editing. In vim we'd type:
This will place the contents of
/home/acortez/homework.txt into the current file.
