You can temporarily store away text or information in registers. Each register has a single character label denoted here by <r>.

C-x / <r>    to save position in register
C-x j <r>to go to position saved in <r>
C-x x <r>to save region
C-x g <r>to get region saved in <r>
C-x r <r>to save rectangle
C-x g <r> to get rectangle (if one was saved in <r>)

Use M-x view-register to see what a register contains.
