I think my previous e-mail is somehow strange-looking unlike others'. But I
didn't recognize the problem. Sorry for the confusion.
I want to suggest to use ':grep' for searching the text and highlighting
Maybe ':grep' is not in your interest. But it could make something more
convenient cause we can get the result in Quickfix list.
Here is the code. Tested only on Windows platform and vim version is
exe 'grep ' . a:pattern
let @/ = substitute(a:pattern, '/\(.*\)/.*$', '\1', '')
command! -nargs=+ Grep call Grep(<q-args>) | set hls
for Eatchar(), :helpgrep Eatchar
