I don't know about that, but I'm sure it's possible. I solution I'm fond of
is registers. For example...

(set-register ?e '(file . "~/.emacs.el"))

...allows me to use `C-x r j e' to jump to my .emacs file, whether it was
previously open or not. I believe it's also possible to specify positions
within the file. Registers are pretty cool.


Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after.
