Added replace mode.
Input 'R' in normal mode to enter replace mode.

In replace mode:

  • esc key to exit to normal mode
  • enter key to execute command and switch to insert mode
  • backspace key to move cursor backward ( This behaviour is different from vim. If previous character is changed by current replace mode, vim reverts the change, but implemented one does not revert. )
  • any other keys to replace character
  • prompt background is different from replace_one mode. background color of replace mode is cyan.

Fixes issue #1417
