in vim, with


I see the jumplist, with G I go to the end of jumplist.

How I can go the end of list with a map ? I think in some like this

nn <leader>j :jumps<CR>G

but this, show the jumplist and go to the end of original file

The “more prompt” is not subject to mappings. From :help more-prompt:

Note: The typed key is directly obtained from the terminal, it is not mapped and typeahead is ignored.

You can define a mapping to reset the more option just before executing :jumps (and restore it afterwards) like this (in your .vimrc):

map <Leader>j :
            \let prevmore=&more<Bar>
            \set nomore<Bar>
            \let &more=prevmore<CR>

When you use this \j mapping (Leader is backslash by default, see :help mapleader), Vim will display the whole jump list without any pauses until it gets to the end (effectively, you will see the last “page” of the output).

Note that <Leader>, and mapleader have nothing to do with the backslashes used above; those are line continuations for :sourced files (like .vimrc).

nn <silent><leader>j :setl more!<bar>jumps<bar>setl more! – juanpablo Oct 30 '11 at 14:41
@juanpablo: There is no need for setl since more is a global-only option. Watch out if you ever set nomore outside of the mapping though — your double-toggle approach would then end up giving you the opposite of what you want for the jumps command (more set when jumps is run). – Chris Johnsen Oct 31 '11 at 1:45

Vim help documentation says the jump list is fixed to a maximum of 100 entries, and you can use a count with CTRL-I (prev) and CTRL-O (next) ... so the obvious way to "go to end" of the jumplist would be:


This would perform what you're looking for. Put it in a mapping or whatever you desire.
