The ^ command toggles the function of the wildcard search character used in the l and r commands. Initially, this function is on. When toggled off, the ^ is treated as any other character. This allows the r command to look for a literal ^, rather than treating ^ as a wildcard.
The de command deletes one or more lines from the current item, starting at the current line number position. If a string is specified, only the lines containing the string are deleted. Lines are not actually deleted until the item is filed with an f command. See x command to cancel the de.
The f command files the dual Editor buffers so that additional changes may be made to an item, or to review previous changes. After filing, the line pointer is positioned to the beginning (top) of the item. Changes to items must be made from the top down. This means that changes may not be made to any line above a line that a change has already been made without previously using the f command.
The fd command deletes the current item. Control returns to TCL, or to the next item in the list, if more than one item was requested. The default behavior of the fd command unconditionally prompts for confirmation of the deletion.
The fs command saves a copy of the current item and remains in the Editor within the current item. It is essentially the same as the fi command, but does not exit the item. When editing large items, periodically issue an fs command to ensure an update to the file. A different file reference and/or item-ID may be specified prior to saving the item.
The l command lists a specified number of lines that contain a search string and increments the line pointer to the last line listed. The l command locates one or more occurrences of a text string within a specified range of line (attribute) numbers.
The t command positions the line pointer to the beginning (top) of the item, without filing the data. The f command also positions to the top of the item. Any lines inserted at the top of the program are placed before line 1 of the item.
