I looking more for a method that is "built-in" to
vi, and not something that I could do in my
.vimrc. Though, solutions for
.vimrc are appreciated. :-)
When I want to search a string, sometimes that string is already typed in and I want to see if it's being used elsewhere on the document. For example: I see a variable, but I want to know where it was initialized, so I'll search that variable's name and keep clicking
SHIFT+n til I find it.
int c = 0; . . //100s or 1000s of lines of code . c = 5;
Is there a shortcut way to search the string that my cursor is hovered over? Not the mouse cursor, but the vi cursor (if that makes sense).
