Create doc comments in vim using pre-typed text


Okay, I currently have a set up in vim so that when I type "<leader>ns" it takes any given word and turns it into a sub "sub word(){}". I also have it when I type "<leader>nc" it creates a doc comment section that is "blank". I was wondering if someone could help me out with combining the two so that when I typed <leader>ns it would create the doc comments with the word already in the Subroutine: line and create the new sub routine aswell. I'm trying to understand what I have (downloaded from the internet) and only doing so so. If someone could help explain how the vim function works, I might be able to go from there but I can't really find any relevant info online for it.
Code:
" Put cursor over word and hit ,ns to create new Sub
nmap <leader>nc o
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Subroutine: 
# Function  : 
# Parms     : 
# Returns   : 
# Assumes   : 
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------



nnoremap <Leader>ns :call Newsub()<CR>
function! Newsub()
   let word = "sub " . expand("<cword>") . "()" . " {" . "}"
  let ln = search("__.*__", 'nW')
  if ln == 0
    call append('$', word)
  else
    call append(ln-1, word)
  endif
endfunction
(the <leader>nc is formatted in vim so that it creates it to look like that [aka, all one line with ctrl-v ctrl-m seperating them])
Thank you

Not sure if this will help

I can find my way around vi but have never used functions, mappings etc

thanks Wim. I was only able to get to the researchweb pdf because of firewall. I'm definitely going to keep that pdf close by. Had a lot of great info (and some spelling errors). It didn't really help that much in relation to an insertion function like I'm trying to do. I just asked on stackoverflow to see if I could get eyes on the topic (will relay answer here if it works).

I'm pretty much the same as you. I can navigate and use vi/vim (though I'm barely touching vim's power).
