set hlsearch in my
~/.vimrc. This is normally very useful, but it's annoying to have to do
:noh after I do a replace like
'<,'>s/$/',/ (which highlights the end of every line after I run it). How do I get
vim to not highlight after replacing like this?
I'm on Ubuntu 9.04 with
vim 7.2. I have the same problem on OS X 10.6 (also
vim 7.2). Something that would work on both would be desireable.
UPDATE: All the answers I've received are just adding a key mapping to do
:noh (or an equivalent). I really try to avoid custom key behaviors that I would really get used to, but then make me fail miserably without them (e.g. at a friend's computer, etc.). I would like
vim to automatically do
:noh after doing a replacement. That is, I only want
hlsearch when using
* (maybe a few other cases), but not other times.
