Scenario: you want to try an alternative implementation of a function while keeping the original within reach.

  1. Select lines.
  2. C-?
  3. (optional) C-y (yank original implementation)
  4. make changes as required
  5. press C-? again

When you reinvoke the function, you can choose which implementation to keep.

Try it out; bug reports are welcome.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
