Part IV: Under Mac OS X's Hood > The Emacs Editor

Chapter 24. The Emacs Editor

The Emacs editor is found on many Unix systems, including Mac OS X Panther, because it is a popular alternative to vi. Many versions are available. This book documents GNU Emacs. For more information, see the O'Reilly book Learning GNU Emacs.

Emacs is much more than "just an editor"; in fact, it provides a fully integrated user environment. From within Emacs you can issue individual shell commands, or open a window where you can work in the shell, read and send mail, read news, access the Internet, write and test programs, and maintain a calendar. To fully describe Emacs would require more space than we have available. In this chapter, therefore, we focus on the editing capabilities of Emacs.
