If you visit certain file names frequently, you can visit them more conveniently if you put their names in registers. Here’s the Lisp code used to put a file name into register r:
(set-register r '(file . name))
(set-register ?z '(file . '/gd/gnu/emacs/19.0/src/ChangeLog'))
puts the file name shown in register ‘z’.
To visit the file whose name is in register r, type C-x r j r. (This is the same command used to jump to a position or restore a frame configuration.)
