There's little point in using emacs if you're not going to customise it. It is a rather buggy agglomeration of software that can only handle small files with short lines. However, in quantity there is a huge amount of code written for emacs. It is a vast system.
The Emacs Lisp snippet of mine that I'm most pleased with is a tiny
function to automatically carry out the command recommended to the
user. For example, if you open a file in a directory that doesn't
exist, emacs will tell you how to make the directory (it says
M-x make-directory). The following fragment allows you to run this
command by pressing F6.
(defun vii-last-mx-suggestion (suggestion) (interactive (list (read-from-minibuffer "Command to execute: " (with-current-buffer "*Messages*" (goto-char (point-max)) (search-backward "M-x") (search-forward " ") (thing-at-point 'symbol))))) (call-interactively (intern suggestion))) (define-key global-map `[(f6)] 'vii-last-mx-suggestion)
