Repeat Last Command Line

To repeat the last command-line given in ex mode, you can simply enter a count followed by "@:".

I find pressing <Up> in Ex mode more intuitive ":help c_<Up>". It's also one key less to press. You can prefix it with something to filter out. For example ":e <Up>" shows the last Ex command which started with ":e " (and you can press <Up> multiple times until you reach the command you need.

Cheers. You should try a flattr button instead of donate though.

Thanks! That made my life easier. Especially repeating the last command multiple times was very useful.
