Why do text editors set the mtime on save when no changes have been made?view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – When I am using sublime, and I've made no changes then the icon in the editor shows the file is unchanged. However, if I click to save it, it still sets the filesystem mtime time to now. Should a non-changing save really update the "modified" time? Simple example: Create an empty file $ touch example.file $ stat -l example.file -rw-r--r-- 1 matthew staff 0 Jul 9 14:45:41 2013 example.file (HowTos)

But using :put=""<cr> adds a line after the current cursor line, whereas dd removes a line at the current cursor. I'd rather have my + keybinding insert a line rather than add it after. What command should I try ? (HowTos)

I have tried to add in my .fluxbox/keys 135 :118 or 135 :Insert But both doesn't seem to work. (HowTos)

I started out by trying one of the Vi-like modes (can't remember which...Viper I think) but I eventually just scrapped that and dove in head first. The thing is that a) Emacs has a few metric shit-tons of features that you can learn and b) it nearly maxes out the possible keybindings. (HowTos)
