If I have the folowing file:
XX:YY:ZZ foobar: some text XX:YY:ZZ foobar: some other text a text breaking the pattern XX:YY:ZZ foobar: some more text
And I want to operate on the differents parts
XX:YY:ZZ foobar: of the lines. When I am on the first line I can select the text that I want with, for example,
v3f:. Now when I am on the second or on the last line how can I select this same text without type once again
I insist on the fact that I need to select the texts sequentially and not all the occurences at the same time.
I know the command
gv which allows to re-select the last selected area but in my case it will select the 16 first characters of the first line which is not what I want.
To sum it up How can I execute again the last selection command?
(Also I wasn't sure about the tags I should use for this question don't hesitate to edit/suggest the right ones to use)
