Vim: setting case insensibility in searches.
Linux kernel 2.6, Slackware 12.0

How do I set case insensibility in searches running vim? I thought I could find this in the manual or the in browsing help within the program itself, but it was not long before I realized I was mistaken. Any suggestion would be welcome. Thanks for reading.

set ignorecase or
set smartcase

It's been kind of you, AlucardZero. Thanks and all the best.

the above solution works along with search to search simply bring vim into the command mode then press


then press enter cursor will go that pattern and press n for further searches.

if you tutorial type in command prompt

Oh, *reads your sig*

It's insensitivity, not insensibility.

Of course it is. I didn't sleep well. Thanks. There exist the two words, sensible and sensitive, in English as well as in my native tong. And I inexorably switch there meanings when it comes to the technical jargon.
