bug#2534: NS: clipboard-kill-ring-save and clipboard-yank etc. not avail

A number of functions such as `clipboard-kill-ring-save' are not available in the NS port because term/ns-win.el unbinds them. It took me a long time to figure out, because they are pre-loaded in menu-bar.el and present in `load-history'.

In the interest of compatibility with existing Emacs 22 code, and also with Emacs 23 code written on other platforms, these functions should exist and do what they're documented to do.

Note that commands like `ns-copy-including-secondary' are bound to menu bar items and to shortcuts such as Command-C (when CUA mode is off), but they are not documented. I would happily write some docstrings, but it isn't clear to me why one would always want to set the secondary "cut buffer" in this situation.


;; Must come after keybindings.

(fmakunbound 'clipboard-yank)
(fmakunbound 'clipboard-kill-ring-save)
(fmakunbound 'clipboard-kill-region)
(fmakunbound 'menu-bar-enable-clipboard)


(defun ns-copy-including-secondary ()
  (call-interactively 'kill-ring-save)
  (ns-store-cut-buffer-internal 'SECONDARY
                                (buffer-substring (point) (mark t))))
(defun ns-paste-secondary ()
  (insert (ns-get-cut-buffer-internal 'SECONDARY)))
