A small mini series (three parts) on GNU Emacs; Klaatu tells you how to use it, when to use it and when not to, why you'd want to use it, and most of all - how to become a pro on it! Not a sales pitch for Emacs, just a harmless introduction. First try is free.

GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable text editor—and more. At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp, a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing. The features of GNU Emacs include:

  • Content-sensitive editing modes, including syntax coloring, for a variety of file types including plain text, source code, and HTML.
  • Complete built-in documentation, including a tutorial for new users.
  • Full Unicode support for nearly all human languages and their scripts.
  • Highly customizable, using Emacs Lisp code or a graphical interface.
  • A large number of extensions that add other functionality, including a project planner, mail and news reader, debugger interface, calendar, and more. Many of these extensions are distributed with GNU Emacs; others are available separately.
