An introduction to Version 19.29 of the GNU Emacs editor, one of the editors available under UNIX. This text provides an introduction to basic editing, a look at several important "editing modes" (special Emacs features for editing specific types of documents, including email, Usenet News, and the World Wide Web), and a brief introduction to customization and Emacs LISP programming. The book is aimed at new Emacs users, whether or not they are programmers. The book also includes a quick-reference card.
