** New modes and packages ** New modes and packages
*** The new cua package provides CUA-like keybindings using C-x for
cut (kill), C-c for copy, C-v for paste (yank), and C-z for undo.
With cua, the region can be set and extended using shifted movement
keys (like pc-selection-mode) and typed text replaces the active
region (like delete-selection-mode). Do not enable these modes with
cua-mode. Customize the variable `cua-mode' to enable cua.
In addition, cua provides unified rectangle support with visible
rectangle highlighting: Use S-return to start a rectangle, extend it
using the movement commands (or mouse-3), and cut or copy it using C-x
or C-c (using C-w and M-w also works).
Use M-o and M-c to `open' or `close' the rectangle, use M-b or M-f, to
fill it with blanks or another character, use M-u or M-l to upcase or
downcase the rectangle, use M-i to increment the numbers in the
rectangle, use M-n to fill the rectangle with a numeric sequence (such
as 10 20 30...), use M-r to replace a regexp in the rectangle, and use
M-' or M-/ to restrict command on the rectangle to a subset of the
rows. See the commentary in cua-base.el for more rectangle commands.
Cua also provides unified support for registers: Use a numeric
prefix argument between 0 and 9, i.e. M-0 .. M-9, for C-x, C-c, and
C-v to cut or copy into register 0-9, or paste from register 0-9.
The last text deleted (not killed) is automatically stored in
register 0. This includes text deleted by typing text.
Finally, cua provides a global mark which is set using S-C-space.
When the global mark is active, any text which is cut or copied is
automatically inserted at the global mark position. See the
commentary in cua-base.el for more global mark related commands.
The features of cua also works with the standard emacs bindings for
kill, copy, yank, and undo. If you want to use cua mode, but don't
want the C-x, C-c, C-v, and C-z bindings, you may customize the
`cua-enable-cua-keys' variable.
*** The new keypad setup package provides simplified configuration
of the numeric keypad which is available on most keyboards.
