;;; Commentary:
;;; What is ``mouse-copy.el''?
;;; It provides one-click text copy and move. Rather than the
;;; standard stroke-out-a-region (down-mouse-1, up-mouse-1) followed
;;; by a yank (down-mouse-2, up-mouse-2 or C-y), you can now stroke
;;; out a region and have it automatically pasted at the current
;;; point. You can also move text just as easily. Although the
;;; difference may not sound like much, it does make mousing text
;;; around a lot easier, IMHO.
;;; If you like mouse-copy, you should also check out mouse-drag
;;; for ``one-click scrolling''.
;;; To use mouse-copy, place the following in your .emacs file:
;;; (require 'mouse-copy)
;;; (global-set-key [M-down-mouse-1] 'mouse-drag-secondary-pasting)
;;; (global-set-key [M-S-down-mouse-1] 'mouse-drag-secondary-moving)
;;; (These definitions override the old binding of M-mouse-1 to
;;; mouse-drag-secondary. I find I don't use that command much so its
;;; loss is not important, and it can be made up with a M-mouse-1
;;; followed by a M-mouse-3. I personally reserve M-mouse bindings
;;; for my window manager and bind everything to C-mouse.)
;;; History and related work:
;;; One-click copying and moving was inspired by lemacs-19.8.
;;; Throw-scrolling was inspired by MacPaint's ``hand'' and by Tk's
;;; mouse-2 scrolling. The package mouse-scroll.el by Tom Wurgler
;;; <> is similar to mouse-drag-throw, but
;;; doesn't pass clicks through.
;;; These functions have been tested in emacs version 19.30,
;;; and this package has run in the past on 19.25-19.29.
;;; Originally mouse-copy was part of a larger package.
;;; As of 11 July 96 the scrolling functions were split out
;;; in preparation for incorporation into (the future) emacs-19.32.
;;; Known Bugs:
;;; - Highlighting is sub-optimal under 19.29 and XFree86-3.1.1
;;; (see \\[mouse-copy-work-around-drag-bug] for details).
;;; - mouse-drag-secondary-pasting and mouse-drag-secondary-moving
;;; require X11R5 (or better) and so fail under older versions
;;; of Open Windows (like that present in Solaris/x86 2.1).
;;; Future plans:
;;; I read about the chording features of Plan-9's Acme environment at
;;; <>. I'd like
;;; to incorporate some of these ideas into mouse-copy. The only
;;; lose is that this is not the current Emacs Way Of Doing Things, so
;;; there would be a learning curve for existing emacs users.
;;; Thanks:
;;; Thanks to Kai Grossjohann
;;; <> for reporting bugs, to
;;; Tom Wurgler <> for reporting bugs and
;;; suggesting fixes, and to Joel Graber <> for
;;; prompting me to do drag-scrolling and for an initial
;;; implementation of horizontal drag-scrolling.
;;; -johnh, 11-Jul-96
;;; Old changes, for reference:
;;; What's new with mouse-copy 2.22?
;;; - copy functions split out from mouse-extras.el
;;; - support for emacs-19.{29,30,31} (no changes needed for the 31 port!)
;;; What's new with mouse-extras 2.21?
;;; - support for emacs-19.{29,30}
;;; - point now stays on the visible screen during horizontal scrolling
;;; (bug identified and fix suggested by Tom Wurgler <>)
;;; - better work-around for lost-mouse-events bug (supports double/triple
;;; clicks), see \\[mouse-extras-work-around-drag-bug] for details.
;;; - work-around for lost-mouse-events bug now is OFF by default;
;;; enable it if you have problems
;;; Code:
;; move/paste code
(defvar mouse-copy-last-paste-start nil
"Internal to `mouse-drag-secondary-pasting'.")
(defvar mouse-copy-last-paste-end nil
"Internal to `mouse-drag-secondary-pasting'.")

"Set to enable mouse-copy-work-around-drag-bug.
See `mouse-copy-work-around-drag-bug' for details.")
(defun mouse-copy-work-around-drag-bug (start-event end-event)
"Code to work around a bug in post-19.29 emacs: it drops mouse-drag events.
The problem occurs under XFree86-3.1.1 (X11R6pl11) but not under X11R5,
and under post-19.29 but not early versions of emacs.
19.29 and 19.30 seems to drop mouse drag events
sometimes. (Reproducable under XFree86-3.1.1 (X11R6pl11) and
XFree86-3.1.2 under Linux 1.2.x. Doesn't occur under X11R5 and SunOS
To see if you have the problem:
Disable this routine (with (setq mouse-copy-have-drag-bug nil))..
Click and drag for a while.
If highlighting stops tracking, you have the bug.
If you have the bug (or the real fix :-), please let me know."
