30.12 Saving Part of a File

While editing, you will sometimes want to save just part of your file as a separate, new file. For example, you might have entered formatting codes and text that you want to use as a header for several files.

You can combine ex line addressing ( 33.3 ) with the write command, w , to save part of a file. For example, if you are in the file practice and want to save part of practice as the file newfile , you could enter:

:230,$w  newfile

Saves from line 230 to end-of-file in newfile .

:.,600w  newfile

Saves from the current line to line 600 in newfile .

[After newfile has been created, you'll need w! instead of w . -JP  ]
