description
This permut.vim plugin allows to swap two columns of text in a selected range of lines.  The columns can be separated by any character (not present in text). By default, the column_separator is '|' character. The user can enter any kind of separator character. The more usual separator character encountered are the ',' or ';' or ':' characters.

Here is the syntax of the Permut command:

    :[range] Permut <colnum1> <colnum2> [column_separator]

Example 1 with default column separator:

    1  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    2  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    3  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    4  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    5  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    6  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    7  ab cd | ef gh | ijk lmn | opq rst | uv wx | yz

    :1,7 Permut 1 3

    1  ijk lmn | ef gh | ab cd | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    2  ijk lmn | ef gh | ab cd | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    3  ijk lmn | ef gh | ab cd | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    4  ijk lmn | ef gh | ab cd | opq rst | uv wx | yz
    5  ijk lmn | ef gh | ab cd | opq rst | uv wx | yz
