  • 20:23 UTC (new) (history) 2018-02-12 append-next-kill . . . . Marcin Borkowski Today I’d like to share a simple trick which I learned a few days ago. It is well-known that if you perform a few killing commands in a row (like C-k or M-d), only one entry is put into the kill ring. Sometimes, however, I want to kill things in different places and still combine them into one kill ring entry. Enter C-M-w, or M-x append-next-kill. It makes the next killing command append its prey to the last kill ring entry.



  • 20:52 UTC (new) (history) 2018-01-29 A simple script for shuffling exam questions . . . . Marcin Borkowski As we approach the end of the semester, my free time shrinks to nearly zero. Today I’m only going to share a simple tip. Last week, I prepared an exam. I wanted 10 questions, each one taken from one chapter of the lecture. I also wanted 6 sets (4 for the exam and 2 for the retake). And I wanted no bias (even unconscious) – problem sets for the retake should be neither easier nor harder than for the first attempt etc.
