The other day I talked some sort of nonsense about organizing my notes into some sort of coherent blog post. Heck with that. Life is too short. Instead I will just dump them here and hope somebody finds them useful. Maybe later I can do something with it. For now it’s just supplemental material for the official Emacs tutorial

I am trying to really learn how to use GNU Emacs. One thing that strikes me is how the Emacs user interface can be thought of as a client application to an Emacs Lisp API. This is not a revolutionary thought, but it really stuck in my head. I reread the official tutorial, focusing on the functions rather than the keybindings that invoke them.

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.
