copy-region - Copy a region of the buffer
n copy-region (esc w)
If the last command also entered text into the kill buffer (or the @cl(4) variable is set to one of these commands) the copy-region text is appended to the last kill.
The numeric argument n determines how the copy operates when a narrow region, defined by narrow-buffer(2), is encountered. The default operation, when the number argument is 1, is to copy all of the text contained within the narrowed region. When the numeric argument is 0 then narrowed region is NOT copied and the text is copied as it appears in the buffer.
To copy text from one place to another, using the copy-region command, the following operations are performed:
Repeat the last two steps to insert further copies of the same text.
Windowing systems such as X-Windows and Microsoft Windows utilize a global windowing kill buffer allowing data to be moved between windowing applications (cut buffer and clipboard, respectively). Within these environments MicroEmacs '06 automatically interacts with the windowing systems kill buffer, the last MicroEmacs '06 copy-region entry is immediately available for a paste operation into another windowing application.
The numeric argument n was introduced in the '04 release.
