This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (alphaev6-dec-osf5.1, X toolkit)
 of Mon Sep 24 2001 on faster.corning.com

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

It seems  to me that  the emacs distribution should  provide analogous
motion/deletion  (etceteras)  commands  to forward-char  backward-char
(etceteras) with  "field" substituted for "char".   These should split
in the  same way that the emacs  sorter does, or perhaps  as does gawk
with a programable split pattern.  For my use "field" is just about
always equal to or preferable to "word".

Thanks, David Lambert.
