These commands will insert a zero byte at the cursor position or delete the byte at that position. insert-unit Ctl-X I delete-forw-unit Esc D The file-save command, Ctl-X Ctl-S, will save the data to the file if a change has been made. The help command, Esc ?, will display a list of all commands and their current key bindings. The abort-cmd command, Ctl-G, will abort any command that is in operation.
