3.10 Yank/Paste

You can yank/paste bytes in visual mode using the 'y' and 'Y' key bindings that are alias for the 'y' and 'yy' commands of the shell. There is an internal buffer that stores N bytes from the current seek. You can write-back to another seek using the 'yy' one.

[0x4A13B8C0]> y?
Usage: y[ft] [length]
 > y 10 @ eip     ; yanks 10 bytes from eip
 > yy @ edi       ; write these bytes where edi points
 > yt [len] dst   ; copy N bytes from here to dst

Sample session:

> s 0x100    ; seek at 0x100
> y 100      ; yanks 100 bytes from here
> s 0x200    ; seek 0x200
> yy         ; pastes 100 bytes

You can perform a yank and paste in a single line by just using the 'yt' command (yank-to). The syntax is the following:

[0x4A13B8C0]> x
