Like the http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/6327/open-file-with-sudo-when-there-is-no-write-permission, but works (in zsh; my commandlinefu is not strong enough to understand why bash don't like it) with vim options, like -O, and many input files.
There could be other mistakes.
There are 3 alternatives - vote for the best!
Write a file you edited in Vim but that you do not have the permissions to write to (unless you use sudo.) Same as #1204 but without the echo to stdout that I find annoying.
Calls sudo tee like all the other lines, but also automatically reloads the file.
Optionally you can add
command Wq :execute ':W' | :q
command WQ :Wq
to make quitting easier
probably just like 1204, but uses tee as a filter (+ I actually understand how this one works)
this avoids several VIM warnings, which I seem too stupid to disable: warning, readonly! and: file and buffer have changed, reload?!
If you can do better, submit your command here.
