Say I have the following text open in vi:

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text [CURSOR]
of the  printing and ...

The cursor position is denoted by [CURSOR]

How can I delete the end-of-line that follows the cursor so that the next line wraps around?

In normal mode, use the J command. From the Ex command line, prefer join.

There are also variants, such as gJ.
