1 - /APPEND
/APPEND /NOAPPEND (D) Indicates whether the moved text should be appended to the current contents of the receiving buffer or should replace the current contents of the receiving buffer.
2 - /BUFFER
/BUFFER=buffer-name /BUFFER=$CLIPBOARD /BUFFER=$PASTE (D) Specifies the buffer to receive the text being moved. If the /REPLACE or /SUBSTITUTE qualifier is specified, then the indicated buffer supplies text to replace text being erased from the current buffer.
3 - /CLIPBOARD
Specifies that the DECwindows clipboard should be used to receive the text being moved, instead of a buffer. The /CLIPBOARD and /BUFFER qualifiers are mutually exclusive.
4 - /ERASE
/ERASE (D) /NOERASE Specifies whether or not the moved text should be deleted from the current buffer. If the current buffer is not modifiable, LSE changes the /ERASE qualifier to /NOERASE and performs the CUT operation. LSE then displays the message "CUT in unmodifiable buffer changed to CUT/NOERASE."
5 - /REPLACE
Erases the selected text and replaces it with the contents of the indicated buffer.
6 - /SUBSTITUTE
Erases the search string, replaces it with the contents of the buffer indicated in the /BUFFER qualifier, and finds the next occurrence of the string. To use this qualifier, do the following: 1. Issue the SET SELECT_MARK command (press the SELECT key) at the command prompt. 2. Type the new text in the buffer. 3. Issue the CUT command (press the CUT or REMOVE key) at the command prompt. This places the text in the indicated buffer. 4. Issue the SEARCH command (press the FIND key) at the command prompt, followed by the text you want to search for and replace. 5. Press the ENTER key. 6. Issue the CUT/SUBSTITUTE command (press the SUBS key) at the command prompt. Subsequently, each time you issue the CUT/SUBSTITUTE command, LSE makes one substitution and finds the next occurrence of the search string.
