I agree that it is much faster than using
search functions, and also agree that it is
faster then using numbers following with g
then pressing enter and then ] or x or d or .
which heavily depends on defined keystrokes)
also do not forget that you may use - and +
so you do not need type numbers if they are
to long just from relative of active link.
But you will need to be good /and/or/ fast
with math to do/use this :)
Currently only -, + and g, G, p and P(ages)
are implemented and which is very important
that they can not be changed in keystrokes
but it should be changed to something like
this: g,G will point to GOTO key;
p,P may point to PRINT key.
[Because it was trivial I also added % -
percent stuff in my sources.] So that should
be changed when adding this features, because
user may change HEAD to point to something
else than ] And using it hardcoded is bad
idea IMHO (as is current state with g,G,p and
Look in src/LYGetFile.c for more info, also
note that DO_FORMS_STUFF is not (yet)
