Yanking
=======

   "Yanking" means reinserting text previously killed.  This is what
some systems call "pasting".  The usual way to move or copy text is to
kill it and then yank it elsewhere one or more times.

`C-y'
     Yank last killed text (`yank').

`M-y'
     Replace text just yanked with an earlier batch of killed text
     (`yank-pop').

`M-w'
     Save region as last killed text without actually killing it
     (`kill-ring-save').

`C-M-w'
     Append next kill to last batch of killed text (`append-next-kill').

* Kill Ring
Where killed text is stored. Basic yanking.
* Appending Kills
Several kills in a row all yank together.
* Earlier Kills
Yanking something killed some time ago.
