Description edburns 2005-07-18 15:18:00 UTC
One of the most useful features of xemacs is the register feature.  A register
is a virtual clipboard, assigned to a key, that can hold either text, or the
cursor location.  There are commands to save the current selection, or the
current cursor location to a register.  Likewise, there are commands to paste
the contents of a register into the current cursor location, or cause the cursor
to jump to the location stored in the register.  

There are as many registers as there are glyphs on the keyboard.  That is, A and
a are separete registers.
Comment 1 edburns 2005-07-18 16:19:47 UTC
It must be possible to pre-populate the registers from a file.  For example, I'd
like to have a set of registers loaded with html elements to ease javadoc authoring.

Moving to the 'other' subcomponent.
