I would like to create a function which will be available for a particular file type. Inside this function I would like to execute ":v/search pattern/d" and ":s/search pattern/substitution/g" commands. How to write such a function in _vimrc file and how to invoke this function when needed?

Seems you are too lazy to even Google it.

I'm confused... are you trying to add a function to VIM?  ... or are you trying to perform a VIM-like substitution function within your own program?

Please tell us more about what you're trying to do...

I'm trying to create a function/macro which would perform combinations of line deletes and substitions. Then I would like to map that function so that I can do this task in one key-stroke.

Hi MikeOM,

I'm not lazy. I tired to go through the VIM help files and also tried googling for some samples. I even tried writing some functions. Unfortunately I didn't find what I was looking for. I've learned it a hard way that sometimes it is better to ask for help.

Thanks
SG
