vim replace in multiple files

	vim *.cpp		Start Vim, defining the argument list to
				contain all the C++ files.  You are now in the
				first file.
	qq			Start recording into the q register
	:%s/\<GetResp\>/GetAnswer/ge
				Do the replacements in the first file.
	:wnext			Write this file and move to the next one.
	q			Stop recording.
	@q			Execute the q register.  This will replay the
				substitution and ":wnext".  You can verify
				that this doesn't produce an error message.
	999@q 			Execute the q register on the remaining files.
