Block motion

I would like to quickly swape through files and j k and / aren't cutting it anymore.

Is there a command to move between blocks of text?

For example:

What I mean by block movement,

  • Initial state: enter image description here
  • After issuing the command: enter image description here

It's ] ] to go forward a section and [ [ to go back one.

You can also use C-f and C-b to scroll up and down pages. I've found using marks to be helpful, you set them with m and go to them with ' or ] '. Those might be worth looking into.

  • Wow, how was I living without these? Thank you.
