This :w is just for writing and saving.

@Dharam, if you add ''q'' means you just quit the editor without even saving, that is why :w is always needed, to save and stay in the editor, or to save and quit by just typing '' wq! ".

'w' is for writing & saving. We are using insert for writing.

In vi editors we use :wq write and quit to save the content.but if we used only w its means just write but not save, so that why we used :wq not w.
