I’m on a line, but not at the beginning. The line has a file name and I’d like to change the base name (not the extension). How do I select everything from the beginning of the line up to, but excluding, the first dot (".")?
The closest I got was Alt+i, c, ^.,. and this selected everything from the second character of the line up to but excluding the dot. Can I do this without first moving to the beginning of the line?
