Vi ---> Remembering text (yanking)

With yank commands you can put "<a-zA-Z> before the command, just as with delete commands. Otherwise you only copy to the undo buffer.

     * | y<move>            | Yank from begin to endpoint of <*><move>.
     * | yy                 | <*> lines.
     * | Y                  | Idem (should be equivalent to `y$' though).
     - | m<a-z>             | Mark the cursor position with a letter.
