- 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. For a
- beginner's introduction to Emacs Lisp, see An Introduction to Emacs Lisp
- Programming, by Bob Chassell, also published by the Free Software
- Foundation. This manual presumes considerable familiarity with the use of
- Emacs for editing; see The GNU Emacs Manual for this basic information.
