VIM command-line editing window

I was thinking I knew quite a lot about VIM but guess what? I do not! 🙂

A few days ago I was doing a few repetitive steps on multiple files and at times I exited VIM (oh, who knows why!) and lost the history. So knowing the awesome power of VIM I knew there had to be some way… I ended up going to #vim for some help and up comes the topic of the command-line editing window. You can add, edit, or delete commands using the normal VIM editing power and re-run the sequence of commands. Here is a tip on with a little more information and below is a screenshot.
