Setting up Evi
To just test Evi out, type:
M-x load-file RET evi.el RET
M-x evi RET
(don't type the spaces) You will now be in the emulator.
If you have any trouble at this point due to something in your
`.exrc' or `EXINIT', and wish to suppress sourcing of `.exrc' and
`EXINIT', place the following in your `.emacs':
(setq evi-supress-ex-startup t)
Then, send me a note with the contents of your `.exrc' and `EXINIT'
so we can fix the problem.
If you decide to continue using Evi, I would recommend first you byte
compile it to speed things up, using the following shell command:
emacs -batch -l evi.el -f batch-byte-compile evi.el
Next, if you want to use Evi all the time, put the following at the
end of your `.emacs' file:
(setq term-setup-hook 'evi)
this will make emacs go into Evi every time you fire it up. Of
course, you may wish to have Evi properly installed for all to use -
consult your local emacs guru.
