lecture on how to "do stuff" in emacs then prerequisites would be
_both_ emacs primitives (navigation etc) and some initial e?lisp. Then
you can turn to the interesting stuff, e.g. "Emacs as an integrated
development environment", covering coding style customization, the
compile and grep facilities, debugging, CVS and GNATS interfaces,
remote editing with efs or ange-ftp, ediff, etags, ctypes, code
A special lecture could be devoted to viper - the vi emulation in
emacs [nudge] ;-)
This is more than one lecture. If we can impose a condition that
everyone interested goes through "C-h t" (the tutorial) and the
_basic_ emacs and elisp info pages, then I could be persuaded to give
a talk about the more interesting stuff, introducing some facilities,
walking through some elisp code examples, and showing how they work. I
mean, stuff that I find useful in everyday work.
I will need some time to prepare, naturally, and I will need someone
to loan me a laptop running linux to test what I want to show before
Another possibility: Everybody goes through C-h t, mulix (or someone
who can be bribed into it) gives an introductory lecture on elisp, and
I cover some tools.
