normal-character

Insert the invoking key into the buffer.

When you type a character bound to the normal-character command, Epsilon inserts the character into the buffer, generally before point. See also the overwrite-mode command.

Nothing happens if the key that invokes normal-character does not represent a valid 8-bit ASCII character.

During auto fill mode, when you type a key bound to this command, the line breaks if appropriate. In particular, if point's column equals the fill column, the command breaks the line. If the value of point's column exceeds the fill column, the command breaks the line at the closest whitespace to the left of the fill column, and uses the normal-character command to insert a space. Otherwise, this command just invokes the normal-character command to insert the key into the buffer. See the auto-fill-mode command.
