I'm a recent Emacs convert. I'm trying to customize a little bit GNU
Emacs 23 for my Mac OS X system.
I'd like change the user directory (usually ~/.emacs.d) and the init
file placing them inside ~/Library/Preferences/Emacs and ~/Library/
Preferences/Emacs/Preferences.el, respectively. Currently I'm
achieving this by using symbolic links.
I'd like to know if there's a cleaner way to do this other than
editing Emacs scripts (subr.el), e.g. by setting some environment
variables. I've tried to set the user-emacs-directory from my init
file, but Emacs ignores me, and still creates auto-save-list inside
Thanks in advance.
