This buffer is _temporary_ and _editable_.
Is is meant as both a tutorial and a sandbox.

THIS INTRO IS OBSOLETE, and has been superseded by:

Basic keys (eev)
The most basic keys of eev are:
  M-e   - to follow a hyperlink, see: (find-eval-intro "Elisp hyperlinks")
  M-k   - to go back,            see: (find-eval-intro "\nGoing back")
  M-j   - to jump to certain predefined places - in particular,
         `M-j' takes you to the list of jump targets.
        `M-2j' takes you to this help page.
        `M-5j' takes you to: (find-eev-intro)
         See: (find-eejump-intro "Families")
  M-h M-h - hyperlinks to here, plus help.
         See: (find-eev-quick-intro "7.1. eejump")
              (find-links-intro "`find-here-links'")

The mnemonics are:
  M-e   - evaluate/execute
  M-j   - jump
  M-k   - kill buffer

It is possible to start learning Emacs and eev by remembering
only that `M-j' jumps to an index; when you're lost, type `M-j',
and will see a reminder of the main keys and of the main jump
targets - after that you can learn how to use `M-k' to kill the
top buffer, and `M-e' to follow elisp hyperlinks. The other keys
are explained in "intros" like this one.

Files, Buffers, Windows, Frames, Display, etc
Emacs can edit several files at the same time, each one
in a "buffer".

  (find-enode "Files")
  (find-enode "Buffers")
  (find-enode "Windows")
  (find-enode "Frames")

The display of Emacs looks like this (asciified):
                                        __ _ _
          /  |                                 |  \
          |  | bla.                            |  | Emacs
Window    |  |                                 |  | calls this
managers  |  |                                 |  | a "window".
call      |  |                                 |  /
this a    |  |--:** foo.txt  (Fundamental) ----|  <-- Its "modeline".
"window". /  |                                 |  \
Emacs     \  | bla bla.                        |  | Another
calls     |  | bleh                            |  | window.
this a    |  |                                 |  |
"frame".  |  |                                 |  /
          |  |--:** bar.txt  (Fundamental) ----|  <-- Its modeline.
          \  |Find file: ~/bletch.txt_ ________|  <-- The minibuffer.

The bottom line of a frame is sometimes the "echo area",
sometimes the "minibuffer". The minibuffer acts like a
window when it is active, and `C-x o' can be used to move
from it to the "normal windows" and back. You can also
use the mouse to move between windows.

  (find-enode "Echo Area")
  (find-enode "Minibuffer")
  (find-enode "Other Window")

By default there's also a "menu bar" (with textual entries) and
a "tool bar" (with icons) at the top of each frame, but
advanced users usually disable them.

  (find-enode "Menu Bar")
  (find-enode "Tool Bars")

Basic keys (Emacs)
(find-enode "Keys" "key sequence")
(find-enode "User Input" "`Control-a'" "usually written `C-a'")
(find-enode "User Input" "<META> key")
(find-enode "Completion" "<TAB>")

M-x   execute-extended-command  (find-enode "M-x" "Running Commands by Name")

Cutting & pasting
The "region" where cut & copy operate is always what is between
the "point" and the "mark":

  (find-enode "Point")
  (find-enode "Mark")

You can do cut, copy and paste by using the icons in the toolbar
or by using the menu bar (the relevant options are under
"Edit"), but the keys are worth learning:

  C-SPC   -- set-mark-command           (find-enode "Setting Mark")
  C-x C-x -- exchange-point-and-mark    (find-enode "Setting Mark" "C-x C-x")
  C-w     -- kill-region     (cut)      (find-enode "Other Kill Commands")
  M-w     -- kill-ring-save  (copy)     (find-enode "Kill Ring")
  C-y     -- yank            (paste)    (find-enode "Kill Ring")

C-/    -- undo    (find-enode "Basic Undo")
C-_    -- undo    (find-enode "Basic Undo")
                  (find-enode "Undo")
