Hi,

Does anyone know a way to copy a link at point with fewer keystrokes than

C-c C-l to edit the link

C-a C-k C-y to go to the beginning of the link line, kill and re-yank 
the link

<RET> <RET> to finish editing the link without changing anything

?

Yours,
Christian

That wasn't clear -- I meant to copy the URL part (link type and path) 
of the link (not the description part).

C-c C-l C-a C-k C-g

Does this work?
I did only some quick testing, this is "C-c C-l" cut down 
for this purpose only.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun my-extract-link ()
  "Extract the link location at point and put it on the killring."
  (interactive)
  (when (org-in-regexp org-bracket-link-regexp 1)
    (kill-new (org-link-unescape (org-match-string-no-properties 1)))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

And if you do this, saving it as a kmacro, you can generate code that
does this:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(fset 'getlink
      (lambda (&optional arg) 
        "Keyboard macro." 
        (interactive "p") 
        (kmacro-exec-ring-item (quote ("\C-c\C-l\C-a\C-k\C-g" 0 "%d")) arg)))
#+end_src

You can then bind /getlink/ to a key or execute it directly with 
M-x getlink RET

Thanks, that seems to work nicely!

Thanks for the tip about saving two keystrokes by aborting with C-g, 
too -- why didn't I think of that??

Yours,
Christian

These two snippets could live on Worg -- can anyone add this to
org-hacks.el (or any relevant place)?

Thanks in advance!

| 
|     org-hacks.org: Reorganization, added "copy link dest to killring" hack
|     
|     Rationale:
|     * Remove "Enhancing the Org experience"
|     Everything in org-hacks enhances the org experience.
|     This headline conveys no information, even worse, it
|     can easily end up a kitchen sink for all kinds of
|     information that eventually no one will find anymore.
|     Distributed hacks to new headlines:
|     
|     * New Headlines
|     - Structure Movement and Editing
|     - Org Table
|     - Capture and Remember
|     - Handling Links
|     
|     * Remove Speed Commands
|     Speed commands are no hack but a regular feature for quite
|     a while now. So far, there was only a link to the manual
|     and "add your stuff here". Definately worth a headline
|     when there is actually content to put in there.
