Pasting codes or any content in VI editor without being commented.

By default VI editor is in normal mode. So we have to enable the paste mode and to activate this before copying the code type below:

:set paste

Now go to insert mode by pressing i and paste your code.

After pasting the codes in VI editor, get out of the paste mode hit ESC and type:

:set nopaste

which will take you back to the normal mode.
