Ok I can’t find it…


Where you’re doing a search & replace, how do you keep from replacing the characters you’re searching for:


I want this:


:1,$s/[0-9]/^M/  --- but this replaces whatever matches in 0-9 with a carriage return – I actually want it to not replace but insert a carriage return after finding the number string and keep the number.
