Command Reference >
|Enter/Exit overwrite mode. ||<Ins>|
This command changes the behavior of the normal-character command,
causing it to insert characters into the buffer destructively,
replacing the character after point. However, Epsilon will never
overwrite a newline character, or overwrite another character with a
newline character. This ensures proper behavior with respect to the
ends of lines.
Without a numeric argument, the command toggles the state of overwrite
mode. With a numeric argument of zero, the command disables overwrite
mode. With a nonzero numeric argument, it turns overwrite mode on.
