Vi has a feature for changing the current word. The following is discussion on accomplishing it in Emacs.
If I have the TextCursor halfway through a word, how do I quickly edit the rest of the word? (e.g. in vi this would be “cw”).
Here are a few ways:
‘kill-word’) to delete the old word ending. (Or reverse the order: delete the ending first, then type a new ending.)
‘mark-word’) to select the old word ending, then type the new word ending to replace the old.
‘overwrite-mode’on using the
‘overwrite-mode’). Type over the old word ending, deleting extra characters with
‘overwrite-mode’back off again when the old ending has been overwritten or deleted.
If I have the TextCursor halfway through a word, how do I quickly edit the whole word? (e.g. in vi this would be “bcw”).
‘M-b M-d’to kill the whole word, and type the new word.
