*squeeze_repeat_blanks.txt*	For Vim version 7.0	Last change: 2018 Aug 30

DESCRIPTION				*squeeze_repeat_blanks*

This plugin provides a user command to reduce multiple blank lines to the last
blank line in that group, for the given range or the whole buffer by default.
What constitutes a "blank" line is configurable per-buffer.

REQUIREMENTS				*squeeze_repeat_blanks-requirements*

This plugin is only available if 'compatible' is not set.  It also requires
the |+user_commands| feature.

COMMANDS				*squeeze_repeat_blanks-commands*

					*:SqueezeRepeatBlanks*
Find repeated blank lines matching the |b:squeeze_repeat_blanks_blank| pattern
and delete all but the last line of every such group, reporting the number of
lines removed.  Accepts a range and defaults to the whole buffer.

OPTIONS					*squeeze_repeat_blanks-options*

					*b:sequeeze_repeat_blanks_blank*
The |buffer-variable| `b:squeeze_repeat_blanks_blank` can be set to a pattern
that constitutes a blank line, for example including whitespace, or a comment
or quoting leader.  This might be desirable for some filetypes.  The
`:SqueezeRepeatBlanks` command defaults to using `^$`, for a true blank line.

AUTHOR					*squeeze_repeat_blanks-author*

Written and maintained by Tom Ryder <tom@sanctum.geek.nz>.

LICENSE					*squeeze_repeat_blanks-license*

Licensed for distribution under the same terms as Vim itself (see |license|).
