:bot and it'll move to the bottom of the file.
Esc+Shift+Colon to get to the
Then type any integer and ENTER to jump to that line number or...
$ to jump to the end line of the file.
Other uses of the
$ in vi are:
this means: take the range of lines from 1 to the end of the file (
$) and search them (s) for 'foo' and replace them with 'bar'.
vi back in 1989 and I still use it today!
