It turns out, I didn't evaluate cua-rect.el
completely. Sorry for the noise.

BTW: cua-rect.el contains a lot of useful functions.

However, detected it only per chance.

For example I needed a copy-function, which is
meanwhile written that way:

(defun copy-rectangle (start end &optional as-is)
  " "
  (interactive "r\nP")
   (if as-is
       (mapconcat 'identity (extract-rectangle start end) "\n")
     (replace-regexp-in-string "[ \t]+" " " (mapconcat 'identity 
(extract-rectangle start end) " ")))))

IMHO it would be helpful to define aliases, in order to
list these functions together with functions from

Too many of them might be used interactively, if
provided therefor. This may help users to deal with
rectangles, to learn about it.

Other question: is the cua-stuff needed here? I didn't
expect to see the file in directory emulation.

Sorry, don't understand what this could mean in this
context. Could you give the name of the function which
shall be called that way?
