Extssh is an Eclipse-only CVS connection method

25 Jan

“3. The ‘extssh’ connection method

The extssh connection method is unique to Eclipse CVS and doesn’t exist in the
command-line CVS client. If you are using extssh to connect to a SSH2
repository and would like to use the command line client for some CVS
operations you can configure the ext connection method to use extssh when
inside Eclipse.

1. Create a new repository location that uses the ext connection method. The
repository path, host, and user should be identical to those in the extssh
2. Open the Team>CVS>Ext Connection Method preference page.
3. Enable ‘Use another connection method type to connect’ and choose *extssh* (which seems kind of weird).
4. Now when you use the ext connection method inside Eclipse, extssh will be
used instead of an external client.”

## To check this is doing what you think its doing have a look at CVS/Root – this will say what connection string you are using for in that CVS repository

Recording macros

8 Jan

@ <register> Replay the macro stored in the named register. For instance, @a replays the macro in register a.

Search replace with special characters

4 Jan

This is most common with ^M which are new lines in dos/windows.

(These are easily searched replaced using Ctrl-v then Ctrl-m)

Another way to do it is to use “ga” over a character, this will give you the character code.

Then you can do Ctrl-v <the character code> and this will work too.
