I want to :map <C-t> :some-ex-command with a space at the end so I can continue typing the command and execute it with enter. I cannot find the syntax for how to do this. I tried

:map <C-t> :some-ex-command " "

which of course inserts literal " characters.

How can this be done?

    Something like this? Or you could also use execute() and I'm sure we also have a duplicate for that too :)
