Emacs: 'substitute' package demo

Raw link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj0w8cYkKFI

In this video I showcase my new package for Emacs. It streamlines certain text substitution routines I used to do with built-in commands. Quote from the project’s README:

Substitute is a set of commands that perform text replacement (i) throughout the buffer, (ii) limited to the current definition (per narrow-to-defun), (iii) from point to the end of the buffer, and (iv) from point to the beginning of the buffer.

These substitutions are meant to be as quick as possible and, as such, differ from the standard query-replace (which I still use). The provided commands prompt for substitute text and perform the substitution outright.

I will add the package to GNU ELPA. Expect it to be available shortly after this publication goes live.
