Well I just happen to have some code that allows the user to set and
move a mark from the keyboard and to make such a mark the selection.
It isn't quite the same as the Zmacs facility, but its close. It's
really more similar to the region in Gnuemacs. I've uploaded it to
/pub/MACL/CONTRIB on cambridge.apple.com. The code is in a file
The code is fairly heavily commented. For those who would rather not
look at the code, there is also:
which contains a cleaner form of the documentation.
Now what I'd really like to see is a keyboard macro facility as per
