B. Handling the Kill Ring

The kill ring is a list that is transformed into a ring by the workings of the rotate-yank-pointer function. The yank and yank-pop commands use the rotate-yank-pointer function. This appendix describes the rotate-yank-pointer function as well as both the yank and the yank-pop commands.

B.1 The rotate-yank-pointer Function  Move a pointer along a list and around.
B.2 yank  Paste a copy of a clipped element.
B.3 yank-pop  Insert first element pointed to.
