Using Emacs to access the Internet. To complete a command you may need to pressEnter. (This key may be labeledReturn.). Emacs ties a command name to a short sequence of keystrokes. This tying of commands to keystrokes is known asbinding. Even things you don’t normally think about as commands, such as inserting the characters that you type, are handled through the binding mechanism. Keys like “A” are bound to the Emacs commandself-insert-command, which inserts them into the buffer you are editing. Most actions that you would normally think of as editor commands are bound to keystroke sequences starting withCtrl orMeta. Emacs also binds some commands to mouse clicks (alone or modified byShift orCtrl) and to options on menus.. Emacs prompts you for a command to execute.. The advantage of using theman command is that you can scroll through the manpage easier than you can in some terminal applications or shell windows. Also, if you try to view manpages in shell mode, they may come out garbled if the settings aren’t right, whereasman gives you clean text.. Picture mode tries to make these commands easy to remember, and it doesn’t do too badly: for example,C-c ^ points upward,C-c-` arguably points to the northwest, and so on. If you can come up with a good mnemonic device forC-c . let us know! Maybe you can think of it as “dot for down.”. You can toggle the states of bothauto-newline andhungry-delete-key
with the commandC-c C-t (forc-toggle-auto-hungry-state).. (load-file “/path-to-cedet/common/cedet.el”). Emacs displays the startup buffer for Custom (Mac OS X).. If you’re a seasoned Lisp programmer, you can do anything you would normally have access to in Lisp. There are certainly particular functions and variables you need to know about to be effective, but it is just a Lisp program.. causes the message:. This function takes the name of an arithmetic operator (as a string) as its argument. As we saw earlier, the stringtok is a token extracted from the*Calc* buffer, in this case, an arithmetic operator such as+ or*. Thecalc-operate function pops the top two arguments off the stack by using thepop function, which is similar to the use ofcdr earlier.read converts the token to a symbol, and thus to the name of an arithmetic function. So, if the operator is+, thenfuncall is called as here:. В В В В nil. You do have choices under Windows as well, thanks to Cygwin (http://cygwin.com/). For example, if you wanted to run Cygwin’s bash, you’ll find helpful information on how to set that up on Ngai Kim Hoong’s page on that topic at http://www.khngai.com/emacs/cygwin.php.. 99.
