Q: how can I automatically copy output from
ess to the kill ring?
ess to conduct statistical analysis. On occasion, I need to copy its raw output into another buffer (usually something like the raw output from
xtable to a .tex file).
Doing it by hand
Right now, after I send code to the running process, I have to:
- switch to the output buffer
- manually mark the relevant output
- copy to the kill ring
- move on with my day
That's laborious, error prone, and breaks my train of thought. Boo hiss.
Can I do it automatically?
How can I automate the first three steps?
I want to send code to the running process (R, in my case) and
copy the output to the kill ring. Does this functionality already
(I could probably adapt the answer in this post if necessary, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel.)
