Being Productive With Emacs

Wednesdays, January 17, 24, and 31, 2007

Read the SIPB listing for this class.

Description: Emacs is a text editor which is far more powerful than most users realize. It can be customized extensively to suit one's needs and extended to do almost arbitrary things. This class covers useful emacs features, customizing emacs, and extending emacs to do your bidding.

Prerequisites: Everyone is welcome. If at all possible, do the built-in emacs tutorial first. On Athena, you can start emacs like so:

athena% emacs

Then, to start the tutorial, press Ctrl-h followed by t.
