So, I’ve been scratching me head for a while to findout how I could use regular expression in vim editor to break line or create a new line with a regular expression. I had about 500 email addresses in a single line seperated by comma. I wanted one email address to be in one line.
\n doesn’t seem to work with vim regular expression. So finally I had to use the following regex to get the job done.
:%s/word /word^M/g You can produce a '^M' by hitting Ctrl-V,Ctrl-M. Thanks peter becker for the tip.
