View Full Version : Emacs and .el files

March 25th, 2008, 05:36 PM

I have a c-style.el file from my professor to use for a project. I can't for the like of me get emacs to work with it. I googled it, bought the O'rielly emacs book and nothing tells me what to do to get it to load it.
I would like to finish the project and use emacs.

I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

Well, one way is to edit the .emacs file in your home directory. Add a line like

(load "/path/to/c-style")

I don't know what you have in that file, so I can't really assist much further than that. If there are functions in that .el file, then you should now be able to call them with Alt+X nameoffunction.

Perhaps post the contents of the .el file and then I can help more.
