Emacs "registers" are places in which you can save text or positions
for later use. Text saved in a register can be copied 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 either a piece of text, a position, or a rectangle, but only
one thing at any given time. Whatever you store in a register remains
there until you store something else in that register.
