The Craft of Text Editing: Emacs for the Modern World (Craig A. Finseth)

This book goes through all there is to know about text editing and more. You can learn more about how such apps are made by studying their design, which is how a character-based text editor is made.

In the process, it covers a wide range of topics related to developing large application software, such as user interface, speed/memory/I/O tradeoffs, and several other factors. You should have a clear understanding of how to use text editing or word processing software after reading this book. This book also covers the ideas and capabilities of text editors similar to Emacs. The first text editor on a computer was of this type, and it continues to be by far the most potent editor on the market today.
