Emacs YASnippet Tip: Expand Whole hyphenated-word as Input

Emacs Tip for YASnippet: Expand Whole hyphenated-word as Input
In YASNippet, you can define your own templates. For example:
bsnp▮ ⇓ (buffer-substring-no-properties START▮ END)
But sometimes your word contains a hyphen, but upon expansion, it uses only part of the word as input. For example, you want:
buffer-substring▮ ⇓ (buffer-substring START▮ END)
But you get:
buffer-substring▮ ⇓ buffer-(substring STRING▮ FROM &optional TO)
How to fix this?
Put the following in your init file:
;; 2011-07-29 yasnippet. Make the “yas/minor-mode”'s expansion behavior to take input word including hyphen. (setq yas/key-syntaxes '("w_" "w_." "^ ")) ; default is '("w" "w_" "w_." "^ ") as of 2011-07-29
