Vim Easter Eggs

I just learned of these nerdy easter eggs inside vim.

1. If you type ":Ni!" the system responds "Do you demand a shrubbery?"

2. If you type ":Help!" the system responds "Don't Panic"


ni shrubbery

You can't get nerdier than this.

  1. actually Ni! is right, but help! has to be lowercase

  3. Uppercase N in Ni! works on Mac. I guess it doesn't work on Linux based machines?

    help 42 is a nice one. Thanks for that.
