Week 1: Setting up emacs and the lisp environment

If you would like to set up the CCRMA Lisp environment on your own Linux PC, see Fernando's installation guide. If you're planning to work at CCRMA, you can ignore this step.

For the purposes of this course, we'll run CLM as a subprocess of xemacs, a widely available text editor. To do so, you'll need to modify the ".emacs" file in your home directory.

If you haven't modified your .emacs file in any way, the simplest thing to do may be to copy this .emacs file into your home directory, replacing the existing file. If you're reading this page with a Netscape browser, you can shift-click on the link to open a dialog box for saving the file.

If, on the other hand, you do have modifications you'd like to preserve (for instance code which enables you to invoke the ILISP/Scheme/Snd combination used for 220a), then you'll want to do the following steps.
