In vi editor I want to substitute the word into to this:

/*+ append */ into

because the way to do it involves a slash, it is not funcitoning, how to do it?

:%s/into//*+ append */ into/g

you escape the slash, so if you want to change / to "o" for example, you do  /\\/o/g

In fact I found the solution which is:

:%s;into;/*+ append */ into;g

But thank you, I will test this later because now is too late.
