B.1 The current-kill Function

The current-kill function changes the element in the kill ring to which kill-ring-yank-pointer points. (Also, the kill-new function sets kill-ring-yank-pointer to point to the latest element of the kill ring. The kill-new function is used directly or indirectly by kill-append, copy-region-as-kill, kill-ring-save, kill-line, and kill-region.)
