      "cw" is a special case, inherited from vi. It breaks the usual
      operator - motion separation. Note that :help cw explains the special
      case, but is inaccurate in your extra-special case, in that it says cw
      works the same as ce; for one character words, cw does what you want,
      not ce.

      It's worth learning the "s" though, especially in code. I used vi for
      years before discovering "s", then found myself using it to save a
      keystroke very often, often with a count.

      HTH, John
