x delete single character under the cursor.
Nx delete N characters, starting with character under cursor
dw delete the single word beginning with a character under the cursor
dNw delete N words beginning with character under cursor;

e.g., d5w deletes 5 words
D delete the remainder of the line, starting with current cursor position
* dd delete entire current line
Ndd or dNd delete N lines, beginning with the current line;
e.g., 5dd deletes 5 lines

Just type vi file_name to create the file and vi is the editor.
