Re: [vox] vim magic

I've done this with a macro but I think using commands is more elegant.
Let's see here... type this in command mode:

   :let @a=1
   :while @a < 10
     put a
     let @a=@a + 1

I learned something new! =)  I'm not sure if this is what Bryan wanted,
though.  Anyway, he said he already found the answer so... =P
