vi copy and paste

See this reference here. But basics are:

   Cut and Paste

   position cursor at start of block and press md
   move cursor to end of block and press d'd
   Move to where you want to paste to and press p or P

   Copy and Paste

   position cursor at start of block and press my
   move cursor to end of block and press y'y
   Move to where you want to paste to and press p or P

The main point of the above is that its an easy to remember simplification of copy and paste in vi. Just remember 'd' to delete/cut and 'y' to yank/copy&paste.
