(X)EmacsĀ Customization

I’m getting into modifying Emacs to do what I want, and (first) learning all that it’s capable of. It’s amazing when I actually poke around in what’s possible.

Here’s a great tutorial. This guy has a bunch of valuable tips (and I like that his favorite keyboard is the same as mine, the Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000).

Here is his description of Emacs support for bookmarks, which I just happened to read about today.

And this is how I found it, frustrated that ctrl-j doesn’t work in Ruby mode, because that mode “overrides” my “globally” set key.

Finally a “new” (old) language to learn, ironically, one that I’ve been using for 15 years.
