Entering special characters into vim
I use vim as my editor. Despite this first sentence, this is not a beginning volley to an editor flame war. I will save that for another day.
Ever editor has its own unique features and vim definitely no stranger to that group. One feature I use quite a bit is what vim calls digraphs.
There are thousands of characters other than the standard keyboard character
that can be displayed with vim. You may already know that you can use
CTRL-v <enter> to force a linefeed into even a DOS filetype. Actually
`CTRL-v ascii### will force special characters from a long list of choices.
But I prefer using CTRL-K followed by two semi-meaningful (slightly resembles the intended special character) to create any one of literally thousands of special characters.»
