Keyboard Macro Workshop—06 Oct 2014
Keyboard macros are a powerful Emacs feature. A keyboard macro is simply a recording of a sequence of key sequences that can be played back and repeated. In this meetup we will first go over the different keyboard macro commands Emacs has to offer. In the second half of the meetup we will solve a couple repetitive text manipulation tasks using macros.
If you’d like to get some directed practice using keyboard macros, Jacob hosts a collection of sample exercises. We also mirror those exercises here in .zip or .tar.gz formats, if you’d prefer.
He’s also made his org slides available.
