hlsearch to highlight text after searching,
$ grep hlsearch ~/.vimrc set hlsearch
and now I want to clear the highlight, which I can do with
:noh. I saw that I can assign this to
esc key in normal mode with this:
$ grep noh ~/.vimrc nnoremap <silent> <esc> :noh<cr><esc>
Now everytime I open vim, it opens in
-- REPLACE -- mode. How can I fix this?
