The Snd sound editor mindset

Some random remarks wrt. to the manual[1] to understand Snd as how it
differs to what I expect from other sound editors.  It's been a while
since I used it.


Snd uses marks.  Place a mark at the cursor (the red cross-hairs)
using C-m.  To play from the mark, click on the triangle corresponding
to the mark's red line.

To delete a mark:


Regions are different from the current selection.  They are _copies_
of a part of a sound file, and do not change when the underlying sound
changes.  The selection by default creates a region.

The selection can be set using the mouse, or by pressing C-space to
set one end, and move the cursor to set the other end.  I.e. C-space
C-> will select from the current point to the end.


C-w deletes current selection.
