An Introduction to Emacs Lisp—07 Apr 2014

Harry Schwartz

Emacs can be thought of as a big Lisp interpreter, so you can’t master Emacs without learning some Emacs Lisp. We’ll be introducing Emacs Lisp by describing its simple syntax, demonstrating a few Lisp functions for manipulating buffers, regions, and strings, writing a few utility functions, and binding those functions to custom keys. By the end of the talk, you should able to do the same.

This talk was also turned into a blog post, and the source code is available.
