Dot Emacs

;; John Bear, July 13, 2009
;; ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs/customizations.el
;; is where font initializations are stored.

;;; m-x describe-key is useful for finding out which function is bound to a key sequence.
;;; c-] pops up the lisp stack

;; To use this file, put a copy into your home directory,
;; and name it .emacs  The first character is a dot, and it's
;; very important.  Unfortunately, most Unix systems are set
;; to hide files whose names begin with dot, so if you're trying to
;; see it, you might need to get a shell window and type ls -la 
;; To get a shell window, type M-x shell 

;; From here on down there is stuff which you MIGHT find useful.
;; To try any part, copy it, then type M-x evaluate-expression
;; and then paste (with C-y) the expression into the minibuffer.

;; Contents start here.

(display-time) ; Displays the current time in the bar at the bottom of the buffer.

; (setq mac-option-modifier 'meta) ;; want option key to be meta

;; Here is the elisp command for switching to the nth buffer
;; C-M-l switches to the previous buffer
;; M-*n* C-M-l switches to the *n*th previous buffer
;; For instance, M-1 C-M-l is equiv. to C-M-l

;; the msg and then in some other window I do Apple-v
;; or Command-v to paste it.
