Linux is a versatile operating system that allows you to perform a standard Vi
search using different keys on your computer keyboard.
This tutorial will list the different keys and functions that you can use to search and find words in Vi/Vim
How To Find a Word in Vi
To find a word
in Vi/Vim, simply type the /
key, followed by the word you're searching for.
Once found, you can press the n
key to go directly to the next occurrence of the word.
Vi/Vim also allows you to launch a search on the word over which your cursor is positioned. To do this, place the cursor over the term, and then press *
to look it up.
