I know you are transitioning across (I saw your subscribe message) - it
will take a little while to get familiar, but not long.
Hopefully you have found <user>.emf file - not sure where this lives on
a Mac, but it is in your home directory. This is equivalent to your old
ue emacs.rc (You should find it here $home/.jasspa/<user>.emf). esc-x
user-setup tells you where it is.
In the distribution macros i.e. /opt/jasspa/contrib or
/usr/share/jasspa/contrib or c:\program files\jasspa\microemacs\contrib
etc. then there is a file called "user.emf". This has lots of stuff in
it that may be useful for new users. You can copy this into your
<user>.emf in full or take bits from it and add.
Right at the bottom of this file you will see how to disable the unbind
key which is as follows:
; If you loose the C-k kill-line key then you are miss-typing and unbinding.
; Remove the global-unbind-key binding so this cannot happen.
!force global-unbind-key "esc C-k"
So add this to your <user>.emf and then restart (or do esc-x
execute-buffer to load it in).
Hope that helps.
