Tip: #137 - Automatically wrap left and right

By default, when pressing left/right cursor keys, Vim will not move to the previous/next line after reaching first/last character in the line. This can be quite annoying for new users. Fortunately this behaviour can be easily changed by putting this in your ~/.vimrc file:
This causes the cursorkeys, as well as h and l, to wrap, when used at beginning and end of lines (the <> and  differ in that <> are the cursorkeys used in normal and visual mode, and the  are the cursorkeys in insert mode).
See :help 'whichwrap' for more info.
