12.4 Operating on the Region

Once you have a region and the mark is active, here are some of the ways you can operate on the region:

  • Kill it with C-w (see Killing).
  • Save it in a register with C-x r s (see Registers).
  • Save it in a buffer or a file (see Accumulating Text).
  • Convert case with C-x C-l or C-x C-u (see Case).
  • Indent it with C-x <TAB> or C-M-\ (see Indentation).
  • Fill it as text with M-x fill-region (see Filling).
  • Print hardcopy with M-x print-region (see Printing).
  • Evaluate it as Lisp code with M-x eval-region (see Lisp Eval).

Most commands that operate on the text in the region have the word region in their names.
