emacs ?? what's emacs ??

Hi there, i keep hearing "emacs" throughout the forum and i was wondering if anyone would give me an idea to exactly what emacs is ????


  • emacs is a command line editor. And it allows you to edit the text based files from the command prompt itself. It is being used by many programmers. Also it can be used in case if you don't have the access to the desktop. I think you can see that emacs can be hard to understand for those who are new so download and try it yourself if you wish to use text editor on command prompt.
