Abstract

Some current text processors have Column Move and Copy commands that require the lines into which the column is to be inserted (the target) to be exactly the same as the lines from which the column is to be moved/copied, or completely separate. That is, in general there cannot be a partial overlap of the source and target lines. The commands to be described allow partial overlap of the source and target lines.
