to modify its function.  In general, an integer means the
"next <integer> occurrences" and a negative number means to
preform the operation in the reverse direction. For example:
        -W      Skip backwards one word
        -3D     Delete the preceeding three characters
        2Fabc$  Find the second occurrence of string <abc>
