Vim Tip: Better Searching


Two things I discovered about searching:


* will search forward for the word under the cursor.  No longer do I have to type /WordUnderTheCursor.


# does the same thing, but goes backwards.  It’s like ?WordUnderTheCursor.


 


g* will search for any word containing the word under the cursor.  So g* on the word count will find count, GetCount, Counter, etc.


g# is the same thing in reverse.
