Is there a text editor that supports "block copy" - the ability to
copy/paste a block (rectangle) of text - multiple columns across
multiple rows - like in a spreadsheet?
I don't see any way to do that in kate or gedit. I'll bet emacs can do
it, but that's one editor I've never tried.
Long ago, in the CP/M, MSDOS world, I used Multiedit and it could do
that (among many other cool things).
Example: copy and paste just the Bs.
