I want to essentially be able to use a command similar to
dt#, where the
# represents any numerical character.
My use case is modifying a script where I have a few server instances with long names that I wanted to abbreviate, from:
instance0 instance1 instance2 instance3
i0 i1 i2 i3
Is that possible without a regex? It would be useful to have something similar that includes a way to represent any alpha or symbol too.
