10 Registers
************

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.
