What happens is, at the /, you get a new line with '/' on it, you type
pattern, you type /, you type '\n', and you get a new line with the first
match on it, or you get an error and you get a new line with the current
line on it.

>(Is there some easy to get to place that documents how open mode acts/works?)

No.  There's old vi, if you can find a system with it.
