Today’s screencast is on editing. We discuss basic editing as well as a handful of commands that allow you to manipulate text efficiently.
The H.264 version of the video for iOS devices is at http://archive.org/download/EmacsMovies/03-episode-editing.mkv.
This is the sample file which I used for the presentation.
Update: There are two more keys which I wanted to mention but missed. The first is
C-backspace which deletes the previous word. It is like
backspace but for the previous word. The other is the numeric prefix command which we saw in the navigation video. If you want to, for example, draw a line of
- signs, you can type
M-40 - and Emacs will repeat the insertion of
- 40 times creating a line.
