.Chapter Video editing
.HL1 Introduction
.index ^Video mode
 TECO has the facility for displaying a portion of the
text being edited on the screen of a video terminal and updating
the display as commands are being executed.
This mode makes it unnecessary to explicitly have
TECO type out text to verify where one is in the text,
or what changes have been made.
All commands are typed the same way in video mode as they are
while not in video mode, the only difference is the display.
 In video display mode, TECO will normally display text around
the pointer, which will be represented on the screen
by the cursor.  Therefore the character the cursor is positioned under is the
character position just after the pointer.
If the pointer is moved outside the bounds of the displayed text,
a different portion of the file will be displayed.
Several "immediate" commands are available for moving the pointer
with a minimal amount of typing.
 To enter video mode, TECO must be told on which lines of
the screen to display the text, and where to display the commands from the
terminal.  Special commands and Q-registers are provided for this purpose.
.HL1 Video mode editing
.index ^Video mode
The video mode editing is entered by a combination of the E_$ and EV commands.
.index ^Command ><E_$
.index ^Command ><EV
The E_$ command is used to define a what Q-register to display on what
lines on the screen, while the EV command is used to turn on/off the video
processing to and define the type of terminal that is being used.
.hl2 E_$ Command
.index ^Command ><E_$
The E_$ command defines the lines that a Q-register will be displayed on.
The format of the command is:
The n and m arguments are numeric arguments that specify the line numbers
that the Q-register is to be displayed on.  The Q-register is the item
that is enclosed in the parens after the E_$ command.  An example of
the E_$ command would be:
This command would cause the text buffer to be displayed on the first
through the nineteenth line.  The command buffer would then be displayed
on the 20th through 24th lines.

 The video parameters that can be read or set with the EV command are:
^&Parameter\&	^&Comment\&
.index ^Video parameter ><LINE
.index ^Video parameter ><MODE
.index ^Video parameter ><NODE
.index ^Video parameter ><OFF
OFF	This keyword will turn the video mode editing off.  It is the inverse
of the ON keyword.
.index ^Video parameter ><ON
ON	This keyword will cause the video mode editing to be turned on.
The E_$ and EV_<Terminal-type_>_$ will have no effect until the video
editing is 'turned on' with this keyword.
