mouse-copy is an Emacs minor mode that lets you copy/yank an s-exp
under the mouse cursor to point by holding down a modifier key (C/C-M)
and left-clicking. It works across windows and is frequently faster
than re-positioning the pointer to select and copy a region.

mouse-copy is inspired by similar functionality in the Lisp Machine
ZWEI/Zmacs and the Macintosh Common Lisp editors.

mouse-copy is licensed under the ISC (simplified BSD) license (see
LICENSE file), and is developed by Vladimir Sedach <>
and Stas Boukarev <>

To use mouse-copy, add something like this to your .emacs:
(load "~/.emacs.d/mouse-copy/mouse-copy.el")
(add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook (lambda () (mouse-copy-mode t)))
(add-hook 'slime-repl-mode-hook (lambda () (mouse-copy-mode t)))
(setq mouse-yank-at-point t) ;; for secondary selection

add-hook for whatever other modes you want to use with mouse-copy.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
