VMS editor EDT allows one to use the keypad to control most of ones editing commands. One of the rather nice features is that the direction of operation can be set to "up" or "down". This then effects commands like "move to next character" and "move to start of line". Another feature is that there are "character", "word" and "line" buffers that one can cut, copy and paste to/from.
I am looking for a Linux editor that has these features?
This is not a request for an EDT editor for Linux. I am "willing" to learn a new editor if it has these features.
