Copy, cut and paste (From here)
Position the cursor where you want to begin cutting;
Press v to select characters (or uppercase V to select whole lines);
Move the cursor to the end of what you want to cut;
Press d to cut (or y to copy);
Move to where you would like to paste;
Press P to paste before the cursor, or p to paste after.
Copy and paste is performed with the same steps except for step 4 where you would press y instead of d:
d = delete = cut
y = yank = copy
