4.11.4 DeleteChar

Syntax: DeleteChar [n]
Abbreviation: DC

deletes n characters from the text. If the optional n argument is not specified, it is assumed to be one. Deleting a character when the cursor is just after the last char on a line will join a line with the following one; in other words, the carriage return between the two lines will be deleted. Note that if the cursor is past the end of the current line, no action will be performed.
