An Introduction to the EMACS Editor

Unknown author (1978-01-01)

EMACS is a real-time editor primarily intended for display terminals. The intent of this memo is to describe EMACS in enough detail to allow a user to edit comfortably in most circumstances, knowing how to get more information if needed. Basic commands described cover buffer editing, file handling, and getting help. Two sections cover commands especially useful for editing LISP code, and text (word- and paragraph-commands). A brief "cultural interest" section describes the environment that supports EMACS commands.
