Since its 7th version, Vim has tabs functionality. You can open multiple files in tabs and do lots of wonderful things with them. To open multiple files from the console, just type:
vim -p filename1 filename2 …
Or if you’re already inside Vim, give the command,
to open a file in a new tab. You can traverse the tabs with the combinations gt and gT. To close a tab just use the exit command (:q).
There is a wide range of cool stuff you can do with tabs. To learn more, just type
in Vim or head to this page.
See you, bye!
