I am using the latest version of Gvim on Windows 10.
When I type
/ and some expression, for example
/a, I see all matches in the document highlighted.
The documentation says that the asterisk symbol
* will match repeated occurrences of the same character, for example,
*n will match
However, when I type
/\*n, nothing is highlighted, and when I press enter, I receive the message "Pattern not found", even though the word "Connect" is in the document.
When I enter
/n*, the entire document is highlighted.
Does this indicate the asterisk has had its meaning remapped due to some Windows configuration or is there some other reason I am not able to match repeated instances of characters? What can I do about this?
