I have both Learning GNU Emacs and Writing GNU Emacs Extensions. I think the elisp is a lot like rebol.

I use some emacs-style keymaps on vim.

I flipped a coin (sort of) heads: emacs, tails: vim. Came up tails :>) -- Tim Johnson <[tim--johnsons-web--com]> http://www.alaska-internet-solutions.com http://www.johnsons-web.com

I started off with emacs on a Unix environment but soon find out that emacs is not as widespread deployed as vi (some years back), and hence switch to vi. vim is a natural adoption ...... YekSoon

Tim, Joel and Chris, Did you think I had died? Well I got sick with some kind of virus (those hackers out there really send some cruel stuff via email :>) ), and was out of commission for a few days. I didn't feel like I was going to die, but I sure didn't feel good. Now that it is past I sure do appreciate feeling good! Anyway many, many thanks for all the very helpful info about vim and emacs. I've installed both on my computer. So far I've mostly been using emacs since I am having to do a lot of cutting and pasting, and I still can't get cut and paste to work right in vim (I may not have it properly installed). I see advantages to both, however. Tim, special thanks for the rebol code for vim. Also, I went to your ezine and the emacs/rebol articles issue (Issue 7 Volume 1), but the links were broken. I sent email to the editor so he will probably send the articles to me, but it seemed to me that all the links for that issue were broken. I hope the files were not accidentally erased and lost. Again, many thanks. Louis
