Vim plugin for moving lines in normal and visual mode.

Copy movelines.vim into ~/.vim/plugin or $HOME/vimfiles/plugin directory.

For normal mode call MoveLineNormal(direction). For virtual mode call MoveLinesVisual(direcion).

In the .vimrc file insert following lines to map keys, I am using Alt+[cursor key]:

nnoremap <silent> <A-h> :call MoveLineNormal(\"l\")<CR>
nnoremap <silent> <A-l> :call MoveLineNormal(\"r\")<CR>

xnoremap <silent> <A-h> :call MoveLinesVisual(\"left\")<CR>
xnoremap <silent> <A-l> :call MoveLinesVisual(\"Right\")<CR>
xnoremap <silent> <A-j> :call MoveLinesVisual(\"down\")<CR>
