I’m mostly a Perl programmer and writer, but I have also been using emacs for… a while. I managed to get a, well, passable grasp on programming elisp; and I think it’s a, well, passable Lisp dialect.
If you want to communicate with me, don’t do it here! Do it through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Programmers of Lisp in general, or Elisp specifically, should really really read Evolution of Lisp. I think of it as “the book they never wanted you to read”.
- I use Emacs. I never got into XEmacs.
- I wish for better Unicode support.
- A long time ago, someone said to me: “Emacs isn’t an editor, it’s an OS!” As the years roll on, I think that they’re on to something there. I’ll settle on saying that Emacs lives in the (tastefully) gray area inbetween. And that’s good! Because the extremes are ed(1), and a Commodore 64 emulator.
