For simple text editing or to modify UNIX configuration files, vi is a nice, quick light-weight text editor. However serious programmers and administrators use Emacs as their editor and environment of choice.
This talk will give a basic history and teach the basics of the Emacs text editor. We'll explore the reasons why programmers and power-users prefer Emacs as their editor of choice. Then we'll demonstrate many of the powerful capabilities of GNU Emacs.
This abstract created with Emacs (on WinXP).
