Currently, tags containing the word
command on our site are the following:
command-line for questions about ex mode commands (accessed with
external-command for questions about calling shell tools within vim.
command-history for questions about the ex mode history.
command-line-window for question about the window accessed via
And repeated-commands whose wiki isn't defined but which contains questions about the global command, macros and repeating stuff.
My question is: Is one of these tags appropriated for questions about user-defined commands? What I'm talking about is especially questions about the keyword
command which allows to define commands that can be used in ex mode.
I might have missed the tag I'm talking about or misunderstood one (or several) of the tags I mentioned earlier, but I have the feeling that such a tag is missing.
The reason I am thinking about it and asking this question is that I saw several questions which could benefit of a dedicated tag, here are some example:
How to define a custom user defined command to filter a range? which is about creating a command taking a range and is tagged external-command.
How to design a command in a plugin that can be called from vimrc which is about using a user-defined command defined in a plugin from the
vimrc. Tagged command-line (and also vimscript and plugin-system but that is coherent with a part of the question).
Is there a command to enter Visual Block mode? which is not the best example but could also be tagged with a dedicated tag.
Also if we find out that this tag really doesn't exist and that it would be useful to the site, it would be good to decide how to call this new tag. I think that something like
user-defined-command would be nice to avoid confusion with the already existing ones.
