Bring the word under the cursor on the :ex line in Vim

Very handy to bring the word currently under the cursor into a :s command in Vim.

Example:

If the cursor was on the word "eggs":

:s/ ==> :s/eggs

Alternatives

There is 1 alternative - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

As a long time vim user, I'm always delighted to find a new gem like this one. Thank you.

Great - i've always wanted such a shortcut - plus 1 from me.

Cheers!

Comment by zwergnase 445 weeks and 4 days ago

Thank, this is very useful.

I checked some other variants by :help

Like :/

which is for inserting the last search pattern

Comment by Vereb 424 weeks and 1 day ago

This is excellent!

I've been yanking a word/phrase and using 0 (zero) to put it into the :ex line.

Thanks!
