Vi: Search and Replace

Change to normal mode with .

Search (Wraped around at end of file):

  Search STRING forward :   / STRING.
Search STRING backward: ? STRING.

Repeat search: n
Repeat search in opposite direction: N (SHIFT-n)

Replace: Same as with sed, Replace OLD with NEW:

First occurrence on current line: :s/OLD/NEW

Globally (all) on current line: :s/OLD/NEW/g

Between two lines #,#: :#,#s/OLD/NEW/g

Every occurrence in file: :%s/OLD/NEW/g
