So I have a configuration file that I want to modify using Vim. I want to change a ******* into something else, but after selecting the ******* in visual mode, I am not sure what am I supposed to do to change the string into something else.
Say I want to change ******* to www.sample.com after maneuvering the cursor to the start of the * and keep pressing l to move to the end of *(by the way, is there a better way to select the string that is composed of the same text?)I am not sure how to modify the string.
If I press esc to get into normal mode, the selecting is apparently no longer there.
