Using Macros to avoid tedious tasks (screencast)

Because I am lazy,1 and that makes me fast.

Using Macros to avoid tedious tasks


  • [X] Show the task
  • [X] Record Macro
  • [X] Use Macro


I record a macro to find ~, then activate the mark and find a space.


Then kill the region and type ${}

C-w ${}

That’s it.


  • It is resilient: I check each change I do.
  • I avoid repeating unnerving stuff.

Thank you

  1. I have lots of stuff to do, so I cannot afford not being lazy ☺

⚙ Babcom is trying to load the comments ⚙

This textbox will disappear when the comments have been loaded.

If the box below shows an error-page, you need to install Freenet with the Sone-Plugin or set the node-path to your freenet node and click the Reload Comments button (or return).

If you see something like Invalid key: There is no @ in that URI! (Sone/search.html), you need to setup Sone and the Web of Trust

If you had Javascript enabled, you would see comments for this page instead of the Sone page of the sites author.

Note: To make a comment which isn’t a reply visible to others here, include a link to this site somewhere in the text of your comment. It will then show up here. To ensure that I get notified of your comment, also include my Sone-ID.
