Editor Modes


To work faster, three editor modes have been introduced which render the first key unnecessary. In normal mode all sequences are possible, in unit mode all sequences that deal with units (that start with U), and in link mode all command sequences that refer to links (i.e. start with L).

Example (continued from above):

 status line 		  command 		  comment

Units Copy> Quit the input command may be cancelled

any time

> Mode

Mode> Units enter unit mode

Units> Copy copying ...

Units Copy> Quit cancel again

Units> Quit leaves the current mode unchanged

Units> Copy copying ...

Units Copy> Return return to normal mode


The mode command is useful, if several unit or link commands are given in sequence. Return cancels a command, like Quit does, but also returns to normal mode.
