visual-mark-ring-mode, v0.1

An Emacs minor-mode to display the locations of markers on the mark-ring.

The mark-ring is a list of former marks of the current buffer. It allows the user to quickly jump to previously visited locations. This minor-mode displays the target locations of these jumps directly in the buffer, as soon as the user initiates the first jump by typing

How to use

Add the following lines to your ~/.emacs file:

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/file")
(autoload 'visual-mark-ring-mode "visual-mark-ring-mode"
  "Displays the position of marks in the mark-ring" t)

where you replace /path/to/file with the absolute path to the directory where you saved this file.

Restart Emacs.

Now you can activate the mode in a specific buffer by typing

M-x visual-mark-ring-mode

in that buffer.
