Starting with version 1.2.0 there is a new syntax for the yank and put commands! Yank is now more similare to vi.
Using ex (colon) Commands:y(ank)
yank can be used with one or two addresses specified. One address with no count specified copies the specified byte into the buffer. Two addresses with no count specified copies multiple bytes starting and ending with the specified bytes. Two addresses and a count value copies count bytes starting at the second specified address (the first address is ignored). If no address is specified, the current address ist used by yank.
Restores previously deleted or yanked bytes after the address specified in the put command.
Overwrites bytes after the specified address with previously deleted or yanked bytes.
NOTE: There are currently no namend buffers available.
