Work with Awk-friendly columnar data in Vim. Provides a simple wrapper to Awk as well as a few useful functions for chopping and changing columnar data. Requires Awk to be installed, of course.

All commands accept a range which defaults to the entire file. For commands which accept columns, these should be comma-separated; you can also use ranges as a shorthand, e.g. 1,3-6,10,11.

  • :[range]Vawk <script> -- Run an arbitrary Awk script.
  • :[range]Vcut <columns> -- Delete the columns specified.
  • :[range]Vonly <columns> -- Delete all columns except for the specified.
  • g:vawksep -- The record separator to use for the data. Defaults to Awk's usual whitespace delimiting.
