Is there a keyboard shortcut in OSX to 'skip' or tab back through the fragments of a word?

e.g.: 'post_text'

if your cursor is after the final 't', can you skip back to the _ and then back to the p?

(Maybe I'm just missing vi..)

This mostly depends on the app, but Xcode and Sublime Text 2 support the Ctrl + Arrow keys to go between subwords.

To skip to beginning and end of line - use <kbd>Cmd</kbd> + Arrow keys. – Eimantas Sep 9 '12 at 14:16
