(with replace we mean here a single replace, even if the last
operation ended with a global substitution).
This command is mainly useful for researching a given number of times, or replacing something a given number of times. The standard technique for accomplishing this is:
FindRegExp) the string you are interested in;
ReplaceOncewith the replacement string you are interested in;
RepeatLast n-1command, where n is the number of occurrences you wanted to skip over, or replace.
The important thing about this sequence of actions is that it will
work this way even in a macro. The
Replace command cannot be used
in a macro unless you really want to interact with
ne during the
macro execution. This is the only reason why the commands
ReplaceOnce are provided.
