VIM Commenting - Speed up


Hi all,

Are you facing problems with commenting in code using VIM?
Here's a nice little trick which proved to be very helpful in my coding experience with VIM editor.

Lets say you want '#' character repeated 100 times to make your code look more neat.

Then all you have to do is

In the insert mode type <C-o>100i#<Esc>.

C-o means you have to type CTRL + O.
# is the character you want to repeat.
ESC - to get your output.

And you will have # repeated 100 times.

This can be done for any character

# - needed in bash scripting, python
% - Matlab commenting
// - C coding.
