12.1.4 Movement Keys

h, j, k, l move the cursor line by line or column by column.

0, ^ and $ move to the leftmost column or to the first or last non-whitespace character on the line.

H, M and L move the cursor to the leftmost column of the top, center or bottom line of the window.

+ and - move the cursor to the leftmost column of the next or previous line.

G moves to the specified absolute line (default: end of buffer).

| moves to the specified absolute column.

w, b, e move the cursor word by word.

B, E move the cursor WORD by WORD (as in vi).

C-u and C-d scroll the display up/down by the specified amount of lines while preserving the cursor position. (Default: half screenful).

C-b and C-f move the cursor up/down a full screen.

g moves to the beginning of the buffer.

% jumps to the specified percentage of the buffer.

Note that Emacs-style movement keys can be specified by a .screenrc command. (markkeys "h=^B:l=^F:$=^E") There is no simple method for a full emacs-style keymap, however, as this involves multi-character codes.
