Advanced Usage

In this section, we’ll take a look at a few advanced concepts that you can try once you’re more comfortable with Serenade.


You can chain commands together to avoid having to pause between commands. For example, you can chain a go to and a delete by saying:

go to line one delete line

You can also chain the use command to save some time. For instance if you say:

type hello world

If you’d like to select the first alternative, and then you know you want to then jump to line 50, you can say:

use one line fifty

Similarly, suppose that all the prior alternatives were invalid and you want to ignore them. You could say:

clear line fifty


If you know you want to execute the same command multiple times, you can add:

<number> times

To the end of a command. For example:

delete line three times
