Viewing the Buffer Vi Commands Motion Commands
The following commands are used to mark positions in the buffer.
Store current point in the register ch. ch must be a lower-case ASCII letter.
|m <||Set mark at the beginning of current buffer.|
|m >||Set mark at the end of current buffer.|
|m .||Set mark at point.|
|m ,||Jump to mark (and pop mark off the mark ring).|
Emacs uses the mark ring to store marked positions. The commands m <, m > and m . not only set mark but also add it as the latest element of the mark ring (replacing the oldest one). By repeating the command `m ,' you can visit older and older marked positions. You will eventually be in a loop as the mark ring is a ring.Viewing the Buffer Vi Commands Motion Commands
