Other Kill Commands
Kill region (from point to the mark) (`kill-region').
Kill word (`kill-word'). Note: Words.
Kill word backwards (`backward-kill-word').
Kill back to beginning of sentence (`backward-kill-sentence').
Kill to end of sentence (`kill-sentence').
Kill sexp (`kill-sexp'). Note: Lists.
Kill through the next occurrence of CHAR (`zap-to-char').
A kill command which is very general is `C-w' (`kill-region'), which
kills everything between point and the mark. With this command, you
can kill any contiguous sequence of characters, if you first set the
region around them.
A convenient way of killing is combined with searching: `M-z'
(`zap-to-char') reads a character and kills from point up to (and
including) the next occurrence of that character in the buffer. A
numeric argument acts as a repeat count. A negative argument means to
search backward and kill text before point.
Other syntactic units can be killed: words, with `M-DEL' and `M-d'
(Note: Words.); sexps, with `C-M-k' (Note: Lists.); and sentences,
with `C-x DEL' and `M-k' (Note: Sentences.).
