vatine: z^5+z^3+1 Newton-Raphson fractal (coding)
[personal profile] vatine in [community profile] emacs
What with having been a "roving unix sysadmin" frequently being deployed to customer sites for troubleshooting, I have found myself knowing enough vi to confuse my fingers.

To that end, I have a small piece of code in my .emacs to take care of most beeps. I hope other in the same situation might find it useful.

(setq wq "Emacs, not vi!")


That ensures that ESC : w q RET gives a useful message rather than beeps.

That's actually a good idea. I use vim? so seldom that I don't seem to have a problem with this in Emacs. However, I've forever typing Emacsisms into vi and that just blows.

I've even started typing Emacsisms into web page text areas without thinking, now that I'm back in the land of RMS.
