    Here is a picture of how it looks like: 


It appears that this displays a portion of another file in the middle
of the file you are editing.  Right?

How do editing commands behave in that situation?
Does that editor have keyboard editing commands?
For instance, do arrow keys normally move through the file?
If so, what do the arrow keys do in that mode?
Do they move into, through, and out of the portion of the other file?
If you search in that mode, does it search through the text that is visible?

What happens if you try to select a region with one end
inside one file and the other end in another file?
Can you do that?  If so, what happens if you delete that region?
