   "Yanking" means getting back text which was killed. Some systems
call this "pasting".  The usual way to move or copy text is to kill it
and then yank it one or more times.

     Yank last killed text (`yank').

     Replace re-inserted killed text with the previously killed text

     Save region as last killed text without actually killing it

     Append next kill to last batch of killed text (`append-next-kill').

* Kill Ring
Where killed text is stored. Basic yanking.
* Appending Kills
Several kills in a row all yank together.
* Earlier Kills
Yanking something killed some time ago.
