This is what I get from the documentation:
\zs "starts the highlighted part" after matching the preceding regex, and
\@<= "starts the highlighted part" after matching the preceding atom. But I don't exactly understand the subtleties of this, so can anyone explain how they differ a bit more in depth?
This is what made me curious: if I run
nnoremap preceded by a space or a start-of-line (i.e. the newline from the preceding line, hence the
\_ preceding the
s) and then run
gn to enter Visual Mode and visually select the next match, for some reason only the first column (i.e. the first
nnoremap) is selected -- despite the fact that the entire
nnoremap word is highlighted with
:hlsearch turned on.
However, if I instead run the search
and then try
gn, the entire
nnoremap is properly selected. What could be going on here? Did I (dare I say) discover some obscure bug?
