[This question was first posted at gnu.emacs.help, but I got no answers
I'm searching for a feature (a minor mode, perhaps?) that allows me a
kind of "interactive" string-insert-rectangle. Restating my question:
Is there a tool that allows me to simultaneously type characters in the
same column of a range of lines, as of each typed character acts as
string-insert-rectangle? Something that also accepts Delete (would act
as delete-rectangle), yank (would also act as string-insert-rectangle),
and so on?
If someone knows the Windows' UltraEdit editor, there's a "Column Mode"
that acts exactly as I want.
