It's a standard practice of mine having to replace whole words with
something else, very useful when coding. I have the following mapping
in my vimrc:
nnoremap <Leader>s :%s/\<\(<C-r><C-w>\)\>//g<Left><Left>
which lets me just hit \+s and replace the current word under the cursor.
Now I've found myself needing more and more frequently to insert
something in between a word. For example, say I have the word
"getSomething" and I want to replace all occurrences with
"getThisSomething", that is insert 'This' in between 'get' and
'Something'. I know how to do this by a hand-written regex but I wanted
to create a mapping like the one above.
I was thinking that I would set the cursor where I need to insert the
new word, as in "get#Something" where # represents the cursor and then
I'd need to replace it like so:
but I haven't been able to find anything that lets me split the word
under the cursor. It's probably not possible to do with such a simple
mapping and I might need a function for it but my knowledge of
vim-scripting is next to nothing so I thought you guys could help me
figure this out.
Thank you very much!
