Vim emulation: :s(substitute)
« on: July 24, 2007, 02:17:40 pm »
In text mode vim (WinXP), the help for :s says:
:[range]s[ubstitute]/{pattern}/{string}/[flags] [count]

When I type on the vim command line
s/^static/\/\/static/g 100
I get an "Invalid option" error.  If I remove the '100', the command executes, but only on the current line.

Indeed...the [count] option is not supported in the SlickEdit Vim :s implementation.  I have filed a feature request for this (though some might consider it a bug  ;)), and will hopefully get it into our next patch.  Thanks!
