This can be a pretty handy trick, saving you time and frustration. Lots of times, an error will tell you which line the error is on, so jumping to that line can save a ton of time, as it'll (hopefully) get you in the general area. It's a trick worth knowing.


Feedback is awesome.

Sweet! It makes me happy to know it helps.

I used to be fairly fluent with vi and vim. However, I haven't had to use either in a very long time, so I can basically remember how to exit the program.

The site has been getting a ton of traffic lately. I'm kinda eager to do the next 'State of Linx-Tips' article, but it'd be too soon.
