Shouldn't there exist commands like
M-X Move to buffer
M-X Move to file
to do this job with less fuss? Perhaps I've overlooked some simple
existing incantation which already does this.
The function ^R Append to Buffer is defaultly on C-X-A. Appending to
a file is handled by
M-X Append to File
But some find it convenient to put this function on C-X C-A, which is
defaultly unused. Do so by putting the following in your EMACS.INIT.
m.m append to fileâu:.x(â¡â)
N.B. That is a quoted control-caret followed by a quoted control-a.
