Saving Positions in Registers
Saving a position records a spot in a buffer so that you can move
back there later. Moving to a saved position reselects that buffer and
moves point to that spot.
`C-x r SPC R'
Save position of point in register R (`point-to-register').
`C-x r j R'
Jump to the position saved in register R (`jump-to-register').
To save the current position of point in a register, choose a name R
and type `C-x r SPC R'. The register R retains the position thus saved
until you store something else in that register.
The command `C-x r j R' moves point to the position recorded in
register R. The register is not affected; it continues to record the
same position. You can jump to the same position using the same
register any number of times.
