When I search a text file for a word from within vim, it will highlight all matches for the word by changing their background color -- to olive green on my terminal; your color may vary. I am looking for a way to highlight the background color behind the current cursor position in this way. (This would make the cursor easier for me to see than it is by default.)
By reading the Vim documentation and searching the web, I found plenty of information on highlighting the line the cursor is currently on. But that is not what I'm looking for right now. I am specifically looking for a way to highlight the character at the current cursor position, specifically by changing its background color in the way Vim already does with matches to text searches
How can I do that?
