How to Read This Tutorial

Plan, spend 30 minute to 1 hour per day.

By now, you have great fundamentals of emacs.

Always try to use emacs while you read, if possible. I suggest you use emacs one hour per day.

All pages on this emacs site is as independent as much as possible.

After 2 months, when you are fluent with the emacs operation, start to read the Chapter (Emacs) Lisp Basics. That is getting into elisp. Not necessary for using emacs, but very helpful, and a life-time saver for programers.

There is a search button on every page, make sure to use that to search main title keywords for topic of interest.
