Xah's Elisp Tutorial

I’d really love to master an editor. Any editor. Vim has been my weapon of choice for years, but Emacs has always intrigued me. It’s easier to use than Vim, but the Elisp language is the real draw. Vim’s configuration / scripting language is awkward at best. Elisp is cryptically lispish, but at least it is possible to break it down without wondering what the heck <sfile> is supposed to be.

So yeah. I’m mostly a Vim guy but I’d love to get more out of my Emacs sessions. With that in mind, I’ll be taking a close look at Xah’s Emacs and Elisp tutorials.
