|An example, you may want to replace any FileSize appears in your program into LastModifiedTime. Since it appears everywhere as both uppercases and lowercases, you have to write it several times:
:%s/FileSize/LastModifiedTime/g " function names
:%s/file_size/last_modified_time/g " variable names
:%s/FILE_SIZE/LAST_MODIFIED_TIME/g " macros
:%s/File size/Last modified time/g " document/comments
This script copes with the case style for you so that you need write just one command:
An alternative way:
first search for the string: /\cfile\A\?size
then run a command: :%SmartCase "LastModifiedTime"
By the way, SmartCase can also cope with the circumstance where you want to replace the string's case style while keeping its words. For example:
FileSize => file_size
LastModifiedTime => last_modified_time
This can be done with the following command:
To sum up: the first argument to SmartCase is the reference words, the secend argument is the reference styles, if the second argument omitted, it's submatch(0).
