Say I have the text:
This is a test!
If my cursor is on the first character, "T", and then I do
d4w, then I am left with just
!. However, if instead I do
v4wd then I'm left with nothing (i.e. the entire string was selected and deleted).
Why is this the case? I saw there are some special cases with words when searching for an answer, but it doesn't seem to exactly apply from my understanding.
