4.2.2 Deleting Characters
- (<delete>) Delete forwards and, after deleting, reject any
completion at the point. A prefix argument sets the number of characters
- Reject current completion, if there is one, and delete
backwards. A prefix argument sets the number of characters to delete. If
this deletes into a word and auto-completion-mode is enabled,
complete what remains of that word.
- (DEL) Similar to completion-backward-delete-char, but
changes tabs to spaces as it deletes.
- completion-kill-word (C-<delete>)
- Similar to completion-delete-char, but kill forward until the
end of the word/sentence/sexp/paragraph, instead of deleting individual
- completion-backward-kill-word (C-DEL)
- Similar to completion-backward-delete-char, but kill backward
until the end of the word/sentence/sexp/paragraph, instead of deleting
These commands replace the standard Emacs deletion and kill commands, so
that they deal sensibly with any provisional completion that might be
encountered in the region being deleted. If
auto-completion-mode is enabled, the backwards deletion
commands also re-complete any remaining prefix when they delete
backwards into part of a word (see Auto-Completion Mode). In all
other respects, these commands are identical to the equivalent standard
Emacs deletion commands with corresponding names.
