I thought that inclusion of the .arc extension in the auto-coding-
alist meant that emacs considered the file to be binary and thus would
not paste contents into another application. Are you saying that the
expected behavior is for emacs to paste anyway?

It should paste something. At least the ascii part of the binary stream
(i.e. the byte codes 0-127) should be copy/pastable.

Pasting from GNU Emacs a selection with control characters (for example from a *Backtrace* buffer that contains parts of an ELC file) into a Mac OS X application makes 0 bytes appear there. A similiar behaviour can be observed with vi(m) in an XTerm. Pasting the same few control characters directly into XTerm can do funny things ... In the end no resemblance is left.



For some reason, this fortune reminds everyone of Marvin Zelkowitz.
