comment What is the definition of a non-blank character in Vim?
@romainl Okay, I see this in line 282 of :h pattern.txt: The WORD may contain any non-blanks (<Tab>s and/or <Space>s). I did dig deep before asking for help but I didn't know how much deeper to dig.

@romainl I did :helpgrep non-blank and then :cnext many times but I failed to find where non-blank is defined. Could you please point me to the help file where non-blank is defined?

@romainl +1-ed you. You seem to be right. Only after reading your comments, I realized that every help subject (including :help :jumps) does not exist in isolation, but it is a part of a bigger help document (motion.txt in this case), and reading the entire document offers better understanding of the context of what I am looking for.

I understand that d cuts (into register x by default). I just choose to use the language used in the documentation. Thank you for the feedback on my question and the advice on reading more of the documentation. Thanks!

I got this when I tried :help v_<C-D>: E419: Sorry, no help for v_<C-D>

Could you please tell me how to understand which other commands (apart from the operators) could be used after selecting text in visual mode? I am trying to learn how to figure this information myself from the :help should I forget it in future.
