Moving to beginning of next word

Does emacs have a way to move to the beginning of the next word with just
a single keystroke?  For example, when I'm creating a message in Pine if I
hold down CTRL and press the space bar the cursor moves to the beginning
of the next word.  Can emacs do this?

M-f

That is, hold down the Meta key while hitting f.  Often, the Meta key
will be labeled Alt.  On Suns, the Meta key is labeled with a diamond.

If M-f doesn't work for you, try ESC f.  (That is, hit ESC, release
ESC, hit f, release f.)

For general commands like this, see the section "Commands for Human
Languages" in the Emacs manual.  (Try typing
'C-h i m Emacs m Text RET')

> M-f

That's not true -- M-f moves to the end of the current word.  To move
to the beginning of next word reliably, you'd have to do something
like `M-f M-f M-b'.  Or, in one key:

(global-set-key [f5] [(meta f) (meta f) (meta b)])
