I use Emacs. I guess it really started in 1984, when I got my first Kaypro computer. It used the CP/M operating system and came with two word processors: WordStar and Perfect Writer. I used both of them quite a bit, and found out years later that Perfect Writer was an Emacs clone for CP/M: same look, feel, keybindings, commands, swap file, all the rest. Perfect Writer was nearly bulletproof software--you might lose a file in WordStar, but never in Perfect Writer.
I graduated to GNU Emacs when I switched to DOS a few years later, and have been using it ever since. Here are a few things I’ve tried to contribute to the Emacs community:
- Understanding GNU Emacs and Tabs - http://www.pement.org/emacs_tabs.htm
- Some awk scripts to convert Emacs OutlineMode to real outline formats
- Change to classic format (I, A, 1, a …) - 
- Change to numbered format (1, 1.1, 1.1.1 …) - 
- emacs131.zip - Make Multi-Edit for Windows emulate the keybindings for Emacs; this file works for ME version 7.11 and 8, but it’s not optimized for Multi-Edit 9.+ yet. I was working on it, so if you’re curious, email me. - visit http://www.pement.org/develop/ and scroll down.
- emacs_key.zip - keymap redefinition file to make PFE (Programmer’s File Editor) emulate the keybindings of GNU Emacs, as much as possible - visit http://www.pement.org/develop/ and scroll down

- Hello and welcome to the wiki! Funny that I wrote RenumberList just the other day. It is not very sophisticated, but somebody could expand it… – AlexSchroeder
- I read some of your Awk scripts not too long ago, and just came upon your “Emacs Tabs” document, and discovered it was authored by the same character. Keep on hacking. --AaronHawley
