Printing the multiplication table is also a good exercise for programming beginners. For-loop, escaped characters, etc... There should be some special ways to print it in Vim.

PHP Array Syntax -> MailChimp Merge Syntax - 407 entries

I recently needed to send an e-mail to our marketing department listing allowed merge tags for our MailChimp campaigns. The allowed merge tags were determined from a PHP array in one of our PHP classes. I transformed the PHP class to MailChimp's syntax and sent the e-mail. It was, however, a long, laborious process. I'm still fairly new to Vim and would love to see how an expert Vim user would tackle one of my own, real-world problems. Thanks and have fun!

LaTeX to XML Math Delimiters - 35 entries

Vim is amazing when used to edit MediaWiki text, but typing "<math> . . . </math>" can be tiresome and frustrating if formulas are used often. LaTeX delimiters are so concise and even come in two flavors: "\( . . . \)" for inline math and "\[ . . . \]" for centered formulas. The goal is to perform the following conversions: "\( . . . \)" becomes "<math>. . .</math>" "\[ . . . \]" becomes "<center><math>. . .</math></center>"
