I realize that G will move the cursor to the last line in a file, but is there a command that will move to the last character?
I know I can type G$ to do this but I thought there might be a single command which does this.

This has been asked before, and no single-keypress command was listed, though you might prefer Ctrl-End to G$:

Ah. I searched SuperUser but I didn't search Unix and Linux. Thanks. I guess I should always start my searches at There are so many StackExchange sites you never know where an answer might pop up. – dedwarmo Feb 11 '13 at 18:15

There is indeed a command, the obscure go (go to {count} byte), but you have to specify a count >= the file size (e.g. 99999go), which makes it kinda impractical.
