Tuesday, July 27, 7:00-9:00 pm
College of DuPage Room SRC-1048
This talk will give a basic history and overview of the Emacs text editor. You'll see that Emacs is more prevalent in the UNIX community than generally realized. We'll explore the reasons why programmers and power-users prefer Emacs as their editor of choice. The talk will end with a demonstration of GNU Emacs.
David has used GNU Emacs for more than 8 years, and still discovers powerful capabilities built-in to the editor all of the time. He has performed many Emacs demonstrations, and usually convinces his audience that Emacs is definitely the "better ultimate editor".
This abstract created with Emacs (on Win95).
