8 The Editor

8.10 Cutting, copying and pasting using the kill ring

The editor provides a sophisticated range of commands for cutting or copying text onto a special kind of clipboard, known as the kill ring, and then pasting that text back into your editor later on. There are three steps in the process, as follows:

8.10.1 - Marking the region
8.10.2 - Cutting or copying text
8.10.3 - Pasting text
