GNU EMACS Manual by Richard M. Stallman

The GNU Emacs Manual documents the use and simple customization of the popular Emacs editor. GNU Emacs is a member of the Emacs editor family. There are many Emacs editors, all sharing common principles of organization.

This is primarily a reference manual, but can also be used as a primer. For complete beginners, it is a good idea to start with the on-line, learn-by-doing tutorial, before reading this manual. This way you can learn Emacs by using Emacs on a specially designed file which describes commands, tells you when to try them, and then explains the results you see. Computer Books are composed of freely available online computer manuals, industry standard specifications, and electronically distributed computer-programming guides. They include open documents' collections of industry specifications and standards and a collection of the best open source documentation on the Web...the most complete open source library available anywhere.

Each book contains the complete, unabridged text of the original document. The on-demand publishing process gives you the actual text of the online document in a convenient, inexpensive, easy-to-use format.

And donates a portion of the profits from open document and open source books to support the mission of the free software community.
