DESCRIPTION *UnconditionalPaste-description*
If you're like me, you occasionally do a linewise yank, and then want to
insert that yanked text in the middle of some other line (or vice versa).
The mappings defined by this plugin will allow you to do a character-, line-,
or block-wise paste no matter how you yanked the text, both from normal and
insert mode.
Often, the register contents aren't quite in the form you need them. Maybe you
need to convert yanked lines to comma-separated arguments, maybe join the
lines with another separator, maybe the reverse: un-joining a single line on
some pattern to yield multiple lines. Though you can do the manipulation after
pasting, this plugin offers shortcut mappings for these actions, which are
especially helpful when you need to repeat the paste multiple times.
SOURCE *
Based on vimtip #1199 by cory,
http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Unconditional_linewise_or_characterwise_paste
RELATED WORKS *
- whitespaste.vim (vimscript #4351) automatically removes blank lines around
linewise contents, and condenses inner lines to a single one. By default, it
remaps p / P, but this can be changed.
==============================================================================
USAGE *UnconditionalPaste-usage*
*gcp* *gcP*
["x]gcp, ["x]gcP Paste characterwise (newline characters and indent are
flattened to spaces) [count] times.
*glp* *glP*
["x]glp, ["x]glP Paste linewise (even if yanked text is not a complete
line) [count] times.
*gbp* *gbP*
["x]gbp, ["x]gbP Paste blockwise (inserting multiple lines in-place,
pushing existing text further to the right) [count]
times.
*g,p* *g,P*
["x]g,p, ["x]g,P Paste characterwise, with each line delimited by ", "
instead of the newline (and indent).
*gqp* *gqP*
["x]gqp, ["x]gqP Query for a separator string, then paste
characterwise, with each line delimited by it.
*gQp* *gQP*
["x]gQp, ["x]gQP Paste characterwise, with each line delimited by the
previously queried (|gqp|) separator string.
*gup* *guP*
["x]gup, ["x]guP Query for a separator pattern, un-join the register
contents, then paste linewise.
*gUp* *gUP*
["x]gUp, ["x]gUP Un-join the register contents on the previously
queried (|gup|) separator pattern, then paste
linewise.
*gpp* *gpP*
["x]gpp, ["x]gpP Paste with the first number found on or after the
current cursor column (or the overall first number, if
no such match, or the last number, if the cursor is at
the end of the line) incremented / decremented by 1.
Do this [count] times, with each paste further
incremented / decremented.
CTRL-R CTRL-C {0-9a-z"%#*+/:.-} *i_CTRL-R_CTRL-C*
Insert the contents of a register characterwise
(newline characters and indent are flattened to
spaces).
If you have options like 'textwidth', 'formatoptions',
or 'autoindent' set, this will influence what will be
inserted.
CTRL-R , {0-9a-z"%#*+/:.-} *i_CTRL-R_,*
Insert the contents of a register characterwise, with
each line delimited by ", " instead of the newline
(and indent).
CTRL-R CTRL-Q {0-9a-z"%#*+/:.-} *i_CTRL-R_CTRL-Q*
Query for a separator string, then insert the contents
of a register characterwise, with each line delimited
by it.
CTRL-R CTRL-Q CTRL-Q {0-9a-z"%#*+/:.-} *i_CTRL-R_CTRL-Q_CTRL-Q*
Insert the contents of a register characterwise, with
each line delimited by the previously queried (|gqp|,
|i_CTRL-R_CTRL-Q|) separator string.
CTRL-R CTRL-U {0-9a-z"%#*+/:.-} *i_CTRL-R_CTRL-U*
Query for a separator pattern, un-join the contents of
a register, then insert it linewise.
CTRL-R CTRL-U CTRL-U {0-9a-z"%#*+/:.-} *i_CTRL-R_CTRL-U_CTRL-U*
Un-join the contents of
a register on the previously queried (|gup|,
|i_CTRL_R_CTRL-U|) pattern, then insert it linewise.
==============================================================================
INSTALLATION *UnconditionalPaste-installation*
This script is packaged as a |vimball|. If you have the "gunzip" decompressor
in your PATH, simply edit the *.vmb.gz package in Vim; otherwise, decompress
the archive first, e.g. using WinZip. Inside Vim, install by sourcing the
vimball or via the |:UseVimball| command. >
vim UnconditionalPaste*.vmb.gz
:so %
To uninstall, use the |:RmVimball| command.
DEPENDENCIES *UnconditionalPaste-dependencies*
- Requires Vim 7.0 or higher.
- repeat.vim (vimscript #2136) plugin (optional)
==============================================================================
CONFIGURATION *UnconditionalPaste-configuration*
For a permanent configuration, put the following commands into your |vimrc|:
*g:UnconditionalPaste_JoinSeparator*
The default separator string for the |gQp| and |i_CTRL-R_CTRL-Q_CTRL-Q|
mappings is a <Tab> character; to preset another one (it will be overridden by
|gqp| and |i_CTRL-R_CTRL-Q|), use: >
let g:UnconditionalPaste_JoinSeparator = 'text'
<
*g:UnconditionalPaste_UnjoinSeparatorPattern*
The default separator pattern for the |gUp| and |i_CTRL-R_CTRL-U_CTRL-U|
mappings matches any whitespace and newlines (i.e. it will get rid of empty
lines); to preset another one (it will be overridden by |gup| and
|i_CTRL-R_CTRL-U|), use: >
let g:UnconditionalPaste_UnjoinSeparatorPattern = '-'
<
*UnconditionalPaste-remap*
If you want to use different mappings (e.g. starting with <Leader>), map your
keys to the <Plug>UnconditionalPaste... mapping targets _before_ sourcing this
script (e.g. in your |vimrc|): >
nmap <Leader>Pc <Plug>UnconditionalPasteCharBefore
nmap <Leader>pc <Plug>UnconditionalPasteCharAfter
nmap <Leader>Pl <Plug>UnconditionalPasteLineBefore
nmap <Leader>pl <Plug>UnconditionalPasteLineAfter
nmap <Leader>Pb <Plug>UnconditionalPasteBlockBefore
nmap <Leader>pb <Plug>UnconditionalPasteBlockAfter
nmap <Leader>P, <Plug>UnconditionalPasteCommaBefore
nmap <Leader>p, <Plug>UnconditionalPasteCommaAfter
nmap <Leader>Pq <Plug>UnconditionalPasteQueriedBefore
nmap <Leader>pq <Plug>UnconditionalPasteQueriedAfter
nmap <Leader>PQ <Plug>UnconditionalPasteRecallQueriedBefore
nmap <Leader>pQ <Plug>UnconditionalPasteRecallQueriedAfter
nmap <Leader>Pu <Plug>UnconditionalPasteUnjoinBefore
nmap <Leader>pu <Plug>UnconditionalPasteUnjoinAfter
nmap <Leader>PU <Plug>UnconditionalPasteRecallUnjoinBefore
nmap <Leader>pU <Plug>UnconditionalPasteRecallUnjoinAfter
nmap <Leader>Pp <Plug>UnconditionalPastePlusBefore
nmap <Leader>pp <Plug>UnconditionalPastePlusAfter
imap <C-G>c <Plug>UnconditionalPasteChar
imap <C-G>, <Plug>UnconditionalPasteComma
imap <C-G>q <Plug>UnconditionalPasteQueried
imap <C-G>Q <Plug>UnconditionalPasteRecallQueried
imap <C-G>u <Plug>UnconditionalPasteUnjoin
imap <C-G>U <Plug>UnconditionalPasteRecallUnjoin

IDEAS *UnconditionalPaste-ideas*
==============================================================================
HISTORY *UnconditionalPaste-history*
2.10 22-Dec-2012
- ENH: Add gpp / gpP mappings to paste with one number (which depending on the
current cursor position) incremented / decremented.
- FIX: For characterwise pastes with a [count], the multiplied pastes must be
joined with the desired separator, not just plainly concatenated.
- FIX: Don't lose the original [count] given when repeating the mapping.
- FIX: Do not re-query on repeat of the mapping.
2.00 05-Dec-2012
- ENH: Add g,p / gqp / gQp mappings to paste lines flattened with comma,
queried, or recalled last used delimiter.
- ENH: Add gup / gUp mappings to paste unjoined register with queried or
recalled last used delimiter pattern.
- ENH: Add CTRL-R CTRL-C mapping to insert register contents characterwise
(flattened) from insert mode, and similar insert mode mappings for the other
new mappings.
- CHG: Flatten all whitespace and newlines before, after, and around lines
when pasting characterwise or joined.
1.22 04-Dec-2012
- BUG: When repeat.vim is not installed, the mappings do nothing. Need to
:execute the :silent! call of repeat.vim to avoid that the remainder of the
command line is aborted together with the call.
- Using separate autoload script to help speed up Vim startup.
1.21 02-Dec-2011
- ENH: When pasting a blockwise register as lines, strip all trailing
whitespace. This is useful when cutting a block of text from a column-like
text and pasting as new lines.
- ENH: When pasting a blockwise register as characters, flatten and shrink all
trailing whitespace to a single space.
1.20 30-Sep-2011
BUG: Repeat always used the unnamed register. Add register registration to
enhanced repeat.vim plugin. This also handles repetition when used together
with the expression register "=. Requires a so far inofficial update to
repeat.vim version 1.0 (that hopefully makes it into upstream), which is
available at https://github.com/inkarkat/vim-repeat/zipball/1.0ENH1
1.11 06-Jun-2011
ENH: Support repetition of mappings through repeat.vim.
1.10 12-Jan-2011
Incorporated suggestions by Peter Rincker (thanks for the patch!):
- Made mappings configurable via the customary <Plug> mappings.
- Added mappings gbp, gbP for blockwise pasting.
- Now requires Vim version 7.0 or higher.
1.00 10-Dec-2010
Published, prompted by a related question on reddit.
0.01 10-Apr-2006
