|Manipulate a list of buffers. ||Ctrl-X Ctrl-B|
This command makes a list of buffers, puts the list in the bufed
buffer, and lets you edit it. Alphabetic keys run special bufed
commands. The N and P commands go to the next and previous buffers in
the list, respectively. The D command deletes the buffer on the
current line immediately. It warns you if the buffer has unsaved
changes. The <Space> or E key selects the buffer on the current line,
and the S key writes the buffer named on the current line to its file.
Typing 1 makes the window occupy the whole screen, then selects the
buffer like E. Typing 2 or 5 splits the window horizontally or
vertically, then selects the indicated buffer. Shift-P prints the
buffer on the current line.
In a bufed listing, the A, B, F, and I keys make bufed sort the
buffer list by last access time, buffer name, file name, or size,
respectively. Use the shifted versions of these keys to sort in
reverse. Pressing U requests an unsorted buffer list: the newest
buffers appear first in the list. M toggles whether modified buffers
appear first in the list.
This command does not normally list special buffers such as the kill
buffers whose names begin with the "
-" character. To list even
these buffers, give the bufed command (or a sorting command) a
