I often do something like this:
- Copy some stuff
- Go to where I need to paste it
- Paste it (
- Kill the rest of the line (
- Select what I just pasted, and copy it again
- Repeat steps 2-5
The whole "re-select what I just pasted" thing is not sensible, I know. On the other hand, I like the Emacs pasting behavior, so I don't want to enable all of what goes on with delete selection mode. There is also a whole collection of increasingly complicated routines you can write or borrow to rethink the kill-ring, but that too seems less about idioms and more about Emacs wrenching.
What is the most efficient (by keystroke count) way to accomplish this regular task, without building a complicated setup or changing to delete-selection-mode?
