Xemacs and elisp packages

Posted on Feb 26 2009

I recently had a look around for a nice way to create tables for use in a latex using some sort of WYSIWYG editor and came across this elisp package for xemacs.

Having never used an elisp package before I did a bit of searching around and it proved to be a bit tricker to find how to install it thatn I thought it would be. Anyway, here are the simple steps needed to get one running.

First of all create a directory somewhere for your elisp files to reside in, I chose ~/elisp. Then open your xemacs slisp config file, for me this was located in ~/.xemacs/custom.el – Then add the following lines to it :

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/elisp")
(require 'table)

In the second line, ‘table’ refers to the elisp file excluding the ‘.el’ file extension, so ‘table.el’ in this case. Simples…
