XEmacs "registers" are places in which you can save text or positions
for later use. Once you save text or a rectangle in a register, you
can copy it into the buffer once or many times; a position saved in a
register is used by moving point to that position. Rectangles can also
be copied into and out of registers (Note: Rectangles).
Each register has a name which is a single character. A register can
store a piece of text, a rectangle, a position, a window configuration,
or a file name, but only one thing at any given time. Whatever you
store in a register remains there until you store something else in that
register. To see what a register R contains, use `M-x view-register'.
`M-x view-register <RET> R'
Display a description of what register R contains.
`M-x view-register' reads a register name as an argument and then
displays the contents of the specified register.
