"Are you an Emacs user but don't know Lisp? Welcome to my first Emacs Lisp primer! This should hopefully help get you over the hurdle so you can have more control over your Emacs sessions. [...] What I really wanted in the beginning was a simple cookbook for doing my "normal" stuff in Lisp. So that's what this is. It's an introduction how to write C, Java or JavaScript code in Emacs Lisp, more or less. [...] Emacs Lisp is a real programming language. It has a compiler, a debugger, a profiler, pretty-printers, runtime documentation, libraries, I/O, networking, process control and much more. There's a lot to learn, but I'm hoping this little primer has got you over the hump, as it were. [...] For those of you learning Emacs Lisp, please let me know if you found this useful. If you try writing some Emacs extensions, let me know what you would like to see documented next; I can always do another installment of the Emergency Elisp series if there's enough interest."
