Word-wise cut, copy & paste over the current word. There's nothing special or magical about these bindings, just that I find them really useful for coding, and I thought I'd share.

Add the following lines to vimrc:

map <A-v> viw"+gPb
map <A-c> viw"+y
map <A-x> viw"+x

These bindings follow the Windows-style keys of control-V, control-C, and control-X; except using alt instead of control. Adjust to your preference.

Comments

I think <Esc>yiw is more convenient.
