 Question by LM Submitted on 1/12/2004 Related FAQ: vi editor FAQ (Frequently Asked Question List), Part 1/2 Rating: Not yet rated Rate this question: N/A Worst Weak OK Good Great Do any one knows a script, or a simple package, that make substitions in vi simpler? For example, if I want to change every ${\alpha+2$  to $2+\alpha$, I would like to type something like substitutions:g/${\alpha+2$/$2+\alpha$/g and not :g/\$\$\alpha\+2\$/s//\$2\+\alpha\\$/g Sorry if this particular example is too simple or, maybe, wrong, but it ilustrates my question well.
