3.27 Echo area operations

There are a range of editor commands which operate only on the Echo Area (that is, the buffer where the user types in commands).

Although in many cases the key bindings have a similar effect to the bindings used in ordinary buffers, this is just for the convenience of the user. In fact the commands that are invoked are different.

3.27.1 Completing commands

3.27.2 Repeating echo area commands

3.27.3 Movement in the echo area

3.27.4 Deleting and inserting text in the echo area
