vi and emacs both have named registers that you can use to store and recall text. I don't know how to use vi but I know they're there.

  • emacs does really beautiful rectangle cuts and pastes.
  • emacs does cuts, copies and appends to regisers.
  • emacs does cuts copies and appends to other buffers.
  • emacs lets you treat a register as a variable that you can increment and decremt and use it's value in keyboard macros.
  • emacs lets you write extra functions in lisp (if you want to)
  • emacs lets you record keyboard macros. either one time quick hacks or you can name them and bind them to a key. just for this session or make them permenant.
emacs does lots of other wonderful things that I can't/haven't figured out how to do in vi. emacs figures out the line ending and uses it transparently, if it gets it wrong you can override it.
