I often use dt, but that only deletes to a character. Is there something like dt that lets me type in a search instead of a single char? I would want to delete from my current cursor to that first search term.

this can be done with d/term<cr>

    Additionally, if you've already performed the search and want to delete until the next occurrence, you can do d//<cr> (or d//e<cr> to include the search pattern).
