I'm looking for a way to copy to clipboard from emacs without passing through the kill-ring, moving the marker or using the mouse.
If I use
x-select-enable-clipboard, I can unite the clipboard and the kill-ring, but it is really great to have two kill-rings (ring + clipboard) available and I don't want to give it up (scrolling between kill-ring items is less fun than having two rings).
I'm using emacs 25.1 on linux (not OSX) and also limited on what I can add to my emacs (it is on a secured web).
Anyone knows if it is even possible?
My ultimate goal is to be able to catch the entire word/ phrase the marker is currently on and copy it to clipboard. I plan doing it by taking code bits from
ffap (find-file-at-point), but if such a thing already exists, this can be a much better solution to this question...
I want to be able to put the marker anywhere on the name (say, the "g" in the middle) and grab the entire thing into my clipboard without overwriting my killring, moving the marker or using the mouse.
