Scenario: I have opened Vim and pasted some text. I open a second tab with
:tabe and paste some other text in there.
Goal: I would like a third tab with a output equivalent to writing both texts to files and opening them with
The closest I can find is "diff the current buffer against a file", but not
diffing two open but unsaved buffers.
I suggest opening the second file in the same tab instead of a new one.
Here's what I usually do:
:vnewcommand splits the current view vertically so you can open the second file there. The
:difft) command is then applied to each view.
