Emacs documentation

Emacs is a very powerful editor which contains so many features that the list given above is only a negligible part of the whole set. Apart from simple typing and rearranging your text, it allows you to also compile your source code directly from the Emacs environment, spell-check your text, find differences between an older and a more recent version of your code, write macros, etc. Although these operations cannot be thoroughly explained in the scope of this text, you may find a number of excellent resources on the Internet. A gentle tutorial to emacs can be found at
