So I'm trying out eclipse whilst learning java.
Java seems pretty neat so far and eclipse is nice -- the little real-time tips are great.
However, the actual editing sucks. AFAICT, it's all just block cut/copy and paste with the mouse. In vim I'm used to being able to do stuff like this with command mode keystrokes:
yy -> copy this line into buffer
5yy -> copy next 5 lines into buffer
5dd -> cut next 5 lines into buffer
p/P -> insert buffer below/above current line or position
And variations on that using alternate buffers, to select by word, etc. Preliminary googling implies eclipse has nothing like this: if you want to copy or cut text, you have to select it exactly with the mouse and use a menu or a ctrl hotkey, like notepad or something. Which is very tedious. And it does not have any internal buffers, it just uses the desktop clipboard. Or have I missed something?
