This is a way to quickly prefix a character (or characters) to a parameter list, via :substitute

In the thought that others may like the same preferred style as I, here is an easy way to prefix each param with an underscore.

The command:

:s/\<\(\I\i*\s\{-}[,)]\)/_\1/g

A sample menu entry:

amenu Fe&ral's.Prefix\ underscores\ to\ params <Esc><Esc>:s/\<\(\I\i*\s\{-}[,)]\)/_\1/g <Bar> :noh<CR>

[edit] An Example

Before:

BOOL CSomeView::Create(DWORD dwStyle, const RECT& rect, CWnd* pParentWnd, UINT nID)

After:

BOOL CSomeView::Create(DWORD _dwStyle, const RECT& _rect, CWnd* _pParentWnd, UINT _nID)
