I use long-running Vim sessions where I constantly open files as new buffers
:e) command. Generally, when I open a new file I
end up with the cursor at the top of the buffer and go from there. But what
if I have a specific line number in mind and I want the cursor to start
:edit command can receive arguments, including a line number argument. To
open up to line 159, I can include the
+159 argument in the command.
:edit +159 path/to/the/file.txt
:h :edit and
:h +cmd for more details about how
:edit works and
what the different arguments can do.
