Emacs features highlighted in this video:

  • F4-m or F12-m – copy current magik method to the Work (**Temp**.magik) buffer. Very helpful while making temporary changes in the code or just testing/debugging.
  • Alt-d – Make current window (buffer) fill its frame (delete-other-windows).
  • Alt-m|Alt-n|Alt-h|Alt-c – insert predefined notes into the code.
  • Alt-d – when a buffer is “dedicated” or locked, Emacs will not select files into that buffer. Dedicated buffers will have “D” shown in the mode line and marked lock icon. I found it very useful to lock the *gis* buffer.
