Back to Emacs
I rediscovered emacs recently. I think it was GNU Octave I've installed from
the ports, that caused the system to install emacs.
A great editor for programs and plain text.
I saw a little problem with it whil updating the gophermap file because the
tab came out a regular space.
That's no problem at all because when you write a computer program or a plain
text document, you cannot just write it the way you want to, so you better tell
wmacs that adding a tab is what you intend to do by pressing -q before the
Another thing is that the role of keys is not the same as in modern editors:
C-x C-s to save a file, for instance.
C-s is for searching inside the document, and the search is incremental and finds
occurences of the requested text immediately.
Emacs can work either on a new window or on the terminal.
In addition there are some built in applications, such as a chatbot known as the
psychotherapist, a web browser, an IRC client, some games, etc.
Install and explore the menus!
