highlight the text and delete it. I have Evo set to use Emacs-style
commands, but the Emacs commands I needed to highlight those thousands
of lines (M-@ M->) did not work. Obviously Evo can't replicate the
entire Emacs command set. So what would be a better way to do this,
besides holding down the LMB while the text scrolls down (slowly) to the
