Use control-K as an extra clipboard in Cocoa apps
Authored by: mcginniwa on Dec 19, '03 01:37:29PM

Works in 10.2 mail.app. However, it leaves me longing for multiple yanks from the kill ring (M-Y after C-Y).

In general, it seems that all the emacs kill-ring stuff works (at least in Terminal, where I checked it). That means you can:

* mark a region (ctl-space, arrow/control-{b,f}
* copy region to the kill ring (meta-w)
* yank the most recent kill (ctl-y)
* substitute what you just yanked with an earlier entry from
the kill ring (meta-y right after the ctl-y; subsequent meta-y's
will substitute earlier kills)

Of course, you could also just use PTHPasteboard, which lets you
see the contents of multiple clipboards, select random stuff to clip
(including images), and have separate, permanent or semi-permanent, clipboards).

:-)
