vim: reset the search pattern

To reset the most recent search pattern (used by ‘n’ and ‘N’, among others), do:

:let @/= “”

Setting it to an empty string actually sets it to nothing. Put a different pattern in the quotes if you prefer.

(I’ve found this useful when setting up complex search/replace macros.)
