line1 Ipsum dignissimos doloribus line7 Consectetur tempore line2 Sit odio placeat line8 Adipisicing elit line3 Consectetur quia line9 Dolor nam line4 Elit adipisicing line10 Dolor esse line5 Adipisicing modi line11 Elit amet line6 Adipisicing quae line12 Amet quos recusandae
Please give a simple way with awk or vim.
My try with vim:
1.move cursor at the 7th line. 2.6dd 3.add many spaces at the end of each line %s/$/ / 4.gg 5.move cursor at the middle of the first line 6.ctrl+v 7.6g and down-side arrow 8.I 9.paste content in 0 regitor. ctrl+r+0
To accomplish this in Vim you can pad the first line with trailing spaces, then go to line 7th and enter this key sequence:
<c-v> stands for
<c-v>05j$dgg$p <c-v> " Enter visual-block mode 0 " Move to beginning of line 5j " Move 5 lines below $ " Move to last character of line d " Delete visual selection gg " Move to first line $p " Paste text at the end of the line
Alternativly enter this in Vim's command line (cursor should be on 7th line):
:exe "norm /<c-v>05j$dgg$p"
