I was just trying to get the value of a bitmask by including it in a printf() statement. At the end of typing it out, i hit some accidental keystroke and a "2" appeared (on the bottom info line), which turns out to be the value of the mask. I LOATH vim documentation as much as I love vim itself. Does anyone know if there is such a keystoke that will go thru a C "compile tree" (is what you would call that?) and give the value of a defined variable?
