Formatting Text

Formatting between marks

If you have two marks, say a and b, then to format the code between the two marks do:

:'a,'b!fmt

To add arguments such as column width do the following:

:'a,'b!fmt -40

Formatting by paragraph

Vim delineates paragraphs based upon empty lines e.g.

This is paragraph number one.

This is paragraph number two.  Notice the space between them.

To auto format a paragraph place the cursor on a line in the paragraph and type the following:

gqap
