Building emacs22 on Mac OS X A Slashdot blurb from a while back, The Future of Emacs said that “Emacs 22 will have many new features such as support for Mac OS X and Cygwin; mouse wheel support and many new modes and packages.” Woo hoo! Mac OS X support. This is a big deal, because Emacs has been somewhat notorious in terms of its Mac maintainability. Here’s what I mean: a few laptops ago, I had a Rev/A iBook which didn’t get any hardware acceleration from OS X (we’re talking 10.0 and maybe 10.1 here), so I found myself using X11 and xterm instead of Terminal , since X11 wasn’t bogging my sad little iPurse down with fancy Quartz rendering in software.

Tutorials on Emacs - Indentation Go to the first, previous, next , last section, table of contents . Basic Concepts There are quite a few concepts in Emacs which relate to white space at the beginning of a line. Enough, in fact, to be potentially quite confusing. I'll try to clear up the confusion in this little document.
Planner is a PersonalInformationManager (PIM) by JohnWiegley . You can use it to manage your tasks, schedule, notes, and anything else you want to store in a free-text richly-hyperlinked personal information manager integrated into Emacs. Because it’s in Emacs, it can easily be tweaked to support your particular way of planning, and it can draw upon the data and functions you already have in Emacs. It puts all of the Emacs PIM pieces together: BbdbMode (addresses), EmacsMuse (linking of notes and publishing), etc. This allows you to easily write notes, link to other notes, link to dates, link to addresses, link to – everything.

Install user-specific preferences and packages in the paths within the user’s home folder (~), system-wide preferences go in /Library/... Install Aquamacs-specific preferences and packages in Aquamacs Emacs paths, others (which should be loaded by other Carbon Emacsen) in Emacs paths. These preferences are loaded, in the given order: PreferencesInAquamacs
Planner Mode http://www.davidco.com/ Niklas Morberg sent me an e-mail about planner.el support for Dave Allen's "Getting Things Done" method. This is the first time I've heard of it, but it'd be nice to see if we can hack planner to support it. The Coach's Corner on the linked site has well-thought articles. - Keeping Your Inbox "Real"
Python-mode Extensions Extensions to python-mode in emacs I really like to run and debugging python programs from inside of emacs but I have wanted to see a couple of additional features added to python-mode.el This applies to executing the program as well as running with a symbolic debugger. I want to be able to conveniently supply arguments to the program under test. There are times when I forget to save the buffers that I am editing, so I would like to have emacs inquire if I want them saved and respond to my reply. Frequently, my programs involve more than one module and here python-mode foils me because it saves the current buffer as a temporary file in a temporary directory with a manufactured, unique name. There is no way that another module of the program will be found.
