Ubuntu: VIM: save file without to close it? [duplicate]



Question:

This question already has an answer here:

How is it possible to save the vim file without to close it? I do a change, save it immediately and continue to work with the file without to reopen it again... I have found of course the question how do I save files edited with vim, anyway the proposed solutions close the file after the job execution.


Solution:1

You should hit Escape and use the write command:

:wEnter

This will write the file to disk and keep the file open.

:wqEnter

Will write and quit the editor.


Solution:2

You need to press escape when you opened the file using vim and made changes, then type :w to save it without closing it


Solution:3

if you want to save file in vim without exiting from vim, use this (to write):

:w  

and if you want to save file and exit form vim editor, use this ( to write and quit):

:wq
