Hi, Everyone,I have a quick question with respect to navigating screens buffer. Basically I work with embedded systems and often have to block and copy more than a single screens worth of text to the buffer to attach to tickets or send to customers, etc. I'd like to be able to copy and paste this text using the screen's native capabilities.
My problem is that when I enter the buffer and type "g" to go to the top, it actually goes to the top of the buffer, not to the first non-whitespace character in the buffer". I basically want to copy the entire buffer starting with the first non-whitespace character. Is there a way to navigate to the first non-whitespace character in the buffer, or am I best just copying the entire buffer and figuring out how to strip out the leading whitespace later?
