An Approach to Learning Emacs. Move to the “i” in “it was the age of wisdom.” Because the point is really just before the “i,” this placement will be just right.. (custom-set-faces. 4.В Type the definition for the abbreviation and pressEnter. Emacs expands the abbreviation and will do so each time you type it followed by a space or punctuation mark.

As you can see, the spacing of our table still isn’t perfect; you’d probably want to use thedelete-rectangle command to delete the extra space between the second and the third columns.

What if you want the latest version of Emacs but don’t want to build it yourself? After all, not every Mac OS X user is an old Unix hack! Mac systems made a name for themselves by providing some of the best user interface conventions around in a single, good-looking package. That hasn’t changed. If you’re not a big fan of do-it-yourself application building, you can download a nifty application bundle and just drag-and-drop your way to a recent build of Emacs.. You don’t really have to concern yourself with this issue. In the tables, the Startup column tells you what command (or commands) put the package to work. Start Emacs, and give this command (M-xstartup-commandEnter). If Emacs complainsno match, the package wasn’t loaded automatically and you need to load the package “by hand.” To do so during an Emacs session, use the commandM-x load-librarynameEnter, where the package’s “name” is given in the first column of the table.
