This directory contains the source of the "Introduction to Programming in Emacs Lisp" written by Robert J. Chassell, firstname.lastname@example.org. This manual is an elementary introduction to programming in Emacs Lisp for people who are not programmers, and who are not necessarily interested in programming, but who do want to customize or extend their computing environment. This third edition of 2006 Oct 31 updates the previous editions to GNU Emacs 22. The Texinfo source file `emacs-lisp-intro.texi', formats without reported error using `pdfeTeXk', Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4) and texinfo.tex version 2006-08-26.17 started by `texi2dvi' version 4.8, and with `makeinfo' version 4.8. Also, this tar file contains the following optional Encapsulated Post Script figures. drawers.eps 7129 bytes cons-1.eps 12136 cons-2.eps 12523 cons-2a.eps 12420 cons-3.eps 12984 cons-4.eps 13866 cons-5.eps 12986 lambda-1.eps 10252 lambda-2.eps 10278 lambda-3.eps 10275 See the beginning of the `emacs-lisp-intro.texi' file for appropriate settings. These figures are not necessary; they are merely nice to look at --- without them you get the same figures printed with ASCII characters. Whether and how you print PostScript depends on your site. You not only need to set 'print-postscript-figures' before creating the .dvi file, but then must convert the .dvi file to .ps with a 'dvips' or equivalent command. On some systems you will see an error message when `psfig.tex' is loaded for the last two .eps files: ! No room for a new \write . If this happens, try `epsf.tex' instead of `psfig.tex', or try typing RET at the error; the formatting may continue successfully. Or else find the section that says: @c !!! Clear print-postscript-figures if the computer formatting this @c document is too small and cannot handle all the diagrams and figures. @c clear print-postscript-figures and change the file so it reads: @clear print-postscript-figures This will prevent TeX from attempting to load the last few .eps files. You will find additional instructions on formatting in the beginning of the Texinfo file 'emacs-lisp-intro.texi'. Best Wishes! 2006 Oct 31 Robert J.
