Saving in emacs

Save yourself potential headaches by saving frequently. To save files in emacs (Figure 4.20), follow these steps.

Figure 4.20

Figure 4.20 Saving is very important—at least if you want to keep the results of your efforts.

To save text in emacs:

  • ctrl-x.jpg/ctrl-s.jpg hairyspiders

    Press ctrl-x.jpg to let emacs know that another command is coming, and then ctrl-s.jpg to save. Finally, type the filename (hairyspiders, in this example) you want to use for the file, then type e. If you've already saved the file once, just press ctrl-x.jpg, followed by ctrl-s.jpg.
