____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Why are smart, selective individuals choosing to use Emacs, a text editor that was introduced 40 years ago at MIT?Perhaps because Emacs is a powerful tool, somewhat difficult to learn, but fast and infinitely extensible. Emacs has undergone continuous improvement ­ even to the present day ­ and is fast, flexible, and usable as a: code editor, programming environment, or document processor. IT offers tools for organizing thoughts, debugging programs, typesetting text, playing games, and interacting with the operating system.Who uses Emacs? -- as Mr. Hahn states: "1. You are smart.2. You like to use computers.3. You enjoy teaching yourself how to use complicated, powerful tools.4. You are able to learn on your own by reading and practicing. "For you ­ a smart person who enjoys using powerful tools on your computer, someone who can follow an entertaining and well-thought-out written companion ­ Mr. Hahn offers the perfect tool for learning how to use the world's most powerful and flexible text editor and programming environment.Many text editor guides provide as little as a page of introduction before proceeding hopefully, in an orderly manner, through keystroke commands. Harley Hahn's Emacs Field Guide provides a 56-page entertaining, yet pedagogically sound, context for understanding and using Emacs. He describes its history, it's place as a text editor, the Emacs working environment, its place in the context of other programming tools, and its primary operating environment Unix/Linux (although he also covers Microsoft Windows, OS/X, Unix/BSD, and other operating systems).
