in vim, with

vim file +10

I can open the file in the line 10, with

vim file +10d

I can delete the line 10, but how I can delete the line and exit of vim? or how I can delete the line without open vim ?

vim file +10d -c wq


vim file +10d -c x

vim --help

 -c <command>        Execute <command> after loading the first file

To do that it would be better to use sed like this:

sed -i 10d file

you can execute multiple commands, but it will always open vim and then close. i suggested sed because you said "without open vim". vim file -c 10d -c x – johnshen64 Jun 7 '12 at 15:20
