Sample text

All rights reserved. Table 2-3. Deletion commands Keystrokes Command name Action C-d delete-char Delete character under cursor. Del delete-backward-char Delete previous character. M-d kill-word Delete next word. M-Del backward-kill-word Delete previous word. C-k kill-line Delete from cursor to end of line. M-k kill-sentence Delete next sentence. C-x Del backward-kill-sentence Delete previous sentence. C-y yank Restore what you’ve deleted. C-w Edit ➝ Cut kill-region Delete a marked region (see next section).

You can also use C-k to join two lines. If you’re at the end of a line, C-k deletes the newline character, effectively making two lines into one long line. The Kill Ring By now you may have noticed that some deletion commands in Emacs are called kill commands, such as kill-region, kill-word, and the like. In Emacs, killing is not fatal, but in fact, quite the opposite. Text that has been killed is not gone forever but is hidden in an area called the kill ring. The kill ring, though it sounds somewhat like a violent gang, is an internal storage area where Emacs puts things you’ve copied or deleted.

Unauthorized use, reproduction and/or distribution are strictly prohibited and violate applicable laws. All rights reserved. Repeating Commands Now let’s learn some efficiency tricks. Emacs lets you repeat any command as many times as you want to. First, you can repeat a command any number of times by pressing M-n before the command, where n is the number of times you want to repeat it. This command is called the digit-argument command. You can give M-n a large argument if you want it to repeat the command many times.
