This is in reply to:

A Vim script that checks capital letters and makes necessary corrections

that I found useful. I am a confirmed CLI hacker and writer. Because my fingers know Vim, I use it. In fact, I'm lost without it. How do I add the one-liner Vim script in my ~/.vimrc? Note, that I have tried a few things with no luck.

You didn't say what you tried and how they didn't work, but if you just want to run that command with a single keystroke, you could put this in your ~/.vimrc:

map <F2> :%s/\(^\\|[.?!] \+\)./\U&/g<CR>

Note that I copied the command from the answer you referred to in your question but I had to double the backslash (\) in front of the bar (|) to get it to work. You might also read

:help usr_40.txt

for more on defining your own commands in Vim.
