I started by installing the emacs package on my workstation:
dnf install -y emacsOK, that was easy. Now run 'emacs' from the terminal and...it launches a graphical program. I wanted it to run in the console. Searching around, I find the way to do this is to run 'emacs -nw'. You can also install the emacs-nox package, but I might want the graphical one so I will just use the command line option for now. I added an alias to ~/.zshrc:
alias emacs='emacs -nw'Easy. Now to get down to business. My .vimrc file is not particularly large and I have never really been comfortable with VimScript. Without getting in to that now, I decided to just use the default Emacs configuration to edit and save some source files. This also has the advantage of making me learn the Emacs defaults.
I opened a C source file and made changes. I did have to go and look up how to exit. I used Ctrl+x Ctrl+c and it asked me to save, so I said yes. I hope I get better at this.
So, some success. I will admit I had a lot of unexpected "i" characters appearing throughout the files I edited, but I would expect that right now. I want to go through my .vimrc and figure out what I want ported over to the Emacs configuration.
