B2-B1 on Anchor (it does not matter what  argument you pass to it,
merely that you do. with no B1, Anchor returns the character number
instead of the line number).

Personally, I'd rather it were the other way around, how often do you ever
need the character number?

While I think of it, I wish that it would add (eg)
:n rather than :n,. as it currently does. 99% of the
time, the first thing I do is delete the comma dot.
