Often times you may desire to repeat the last command performed. This
can be done with the "." command. Place the cursor in the appropriate
position and press "." to repeat the most recent command. Suppose I
had a C program in which I wished to switch a variable name from
no_way to yes_way in two different places. One way I could
accomplish this would be to place my cursor on the beginning of the first
no_way and type cw (change word) and then type
yes_way <esc>. This would accomplish my task
for the first case. Now all I would need to do to change the second
no_way would be to place my cursor at the beginning of it and
type "." to repeat the last command.
