Highlighting Search Matches

Want to see all the places in the buffer that match a search pattern? Turn on hlsearch and Vim will highlight all the matches of the previous search.

Try turning it on with :set hlsearch and then search for some pattern using /.

If you no longer want to see all the highlighted matches, turn it off with :set nohlsearch.

See :h hlsearch for more details.
