An Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp (Robert J. Chassell)

This lesson serves as a basic introduction to programming fundamentals and teaches non-programmers how to personalize their work environment.

Many exercises and sample programs are included, and the author also takes you through the source code of a number of GNU Emacs commands. There is also a helpful appendix for references.

A straightforward, comprehensive, and potent programming language is Emacs Lisp. It serves as the foundation for GNU Emacs, an integrated development environment with unique capabilities for text scanning and parsing as well as managing several files, buffers, displays, windows, and sub-processors.

You will learn how to: * set variables, * define functions, * use if, let, and while, * create while loops and recursive loops. How to configure GNU Emacs for yourself, even when it is shared on a network; How to search for a word or phrase; How to debug programs; and much more. This updated third edition maintains compatibility with older versions while incorporating new capabilities found in GNU Emacs version 21.
