Vim: Search for visual selection

The * command is awesome in Vim, as it let's you search for the word currently under the cursor as in:


keystrokes: *

But unfortunately if you do the same on a visual selection of multiple words it searches only for the word under the cursor as well, but not for the whole selection.

The visual star plugin is very nice for exactly that feature. It allows you to search for the whole visual selection.
