#6284 closed defect (wontfix)

vi editor deletes trailing newline

Reported by: Chris Martin <chris@…> Owned by: developers
Priority: lowest Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Kamikaze 8.09
Keywords: vi edit newline Cc:


This bug has been around for a while, while not important it is quite annoying.

When ever you edit a word using "cw", vi will remove the word and open for editing, how ever if the word is the last word on the line it will also remove the new-line character and any other following white space), causing the next line to be appended to the current line.

While it is easy to work around, it is a bit annoying, especially if you manually edit the configuration files manually like I do.
