Apologies I am probably expressing myself very badly, that's also why 1 hour searching hasn't yielded the result I wanted yet...
Assume I want to replace
false in a buffer.
Now, this is such a common word that I don't want to just change globally
:%s/true/false/g. I want to move the cursor (or search for the word), and every time I want to actually change, repeat the substitution.
So I can do then
:<up arrow to show again the substitution command><CR>
If I'd like to map this to a keyboard shortcut:
map <C-Y> :<WHAT TO PUT HERE?><CR> ?
map <C-Y> :@<CR> but that doesn't seem to be doing what I want.
