Moving a block of text

Moving text amounts to picking up words and placing them in a new position.

To move a block of text do the following:

1. Define the 'region'.

2. Type ^W to 'wipe' the 'region'.

3. Move the cursor to the place where you want the text to go.

4. Type ^Y to 'yank' the text.

A copy of the text moves from the 'kill buffer' and appears in its new location. The text remains in this buffer until it is replaced by something else or until you finish using MicroEMACS. As long as the text is in this buffer you can continue inserting it into different places.
