Book Description

Most of the GNU Emacs text editor is written in the programming language called Emacs Lisp. You can write new code in Emacs Lisp and install it as an extension to the editor. However, Emacs Lisp is more than a mere "extension language"; it is a full computer programming language in its own right. You can use it as you would any other programming language.

Because Emacs Lisp is designed for use in an editor, it has special features for scanning and parsing text as well as features for handling files, buffers, displays, subprocesses, and so on. Emacs Lisp is closely integrated with the editing facilities; thus, editing commands are functions that can also conveniently be called from Lisp programs, and parameters for customization are ordinary Lisp variables.

This manual attempts to be a full description of Emacs Lisp. Emacs Lisp is more than a mere 'extension language'; it is a full computer programming language in its own right. You can use it as you would any other programming language.

This is a high-quality, hardbound edition of the official GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual, from the current Emacs Version 24.5 distribution. It is printed on acid free and lignin free paper, that meets all ANSI standards for archival quality paper. *** The GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual is also available for free within GNU Emacs itself, via the help system, or online. Professional users may find this hardbound edition convenient for frequent consultation, and an excellent copy for desktop reference. *** For each copy of this manual sold, 10% of its gross sale revenue is donated to the Free Software Foundation (FSF).
