I tried the 7.3b BETA branch you suggested and it worked. Excellent!
Too bad the standard Mac OS X text selection doesn't work. FYI, I tried
the same thing with Emacs 22.1.1 (/usr/bin/emacs) and the standard Mac
OS X text selection *does* work with it. From a Terminal command prompt
I typed "emacs genesis-kjv.txt", then:
C-u 70 C-x f
M-x fill-region <return>
(Don't type any spaces. 'C-' means hold down the Control key while
pressing the key that follows. 'M-' means hold down the Meta key while
pressing the key that follows. (In my Mac OS X environment, and
probably the default on most others, I had to press the Escape key and
let go to generate an 'M-'.) <return> means press the Return key.)
After doing the above in Emacs, I selected the text using the standard
Mac OS X click-and-drag method, pressed Command-C, and successfully
pasted it into a Vim session in insert mode with Command-V.
It would be great if this could "just work" in Vim as I would expect,
but I would understand if there's an implementation reason why not.
Nonetheless, I'm quite pleased with the new yank-to-clipboard feature
for Mac OS X in Vim 7.3b BETA; it works well for me.
