Re: Creating projects in Emacs

In the Miscellaneous Commands chapter, under "Saving Emacs Sessions" (section 30.11 in my copy) of the GNU Emacs Manual, it also recommends:

        add these lines at the end of your '.emacs' file:

                (load "desktop")

That way all you have to do is make the directory in which you saved your desktop your current shell directory, and type:


to get right back to where you were when you last worked on that project. Every time you exit from emacs it automatically updates your saved desktop for the next time. You have to manually type "M-x desktop-save" only once per project. And you don't ever have to type "M-x desktop-read". Everything else is automatic.

1. "load" all the files for the project into emacs (an emacs

2. type M-x desktop-save, and specify the directory into which
   you would like to save the desktop (i.e., the list of files).

3. when you want to reload all the files from the project, start
   a fresh emacs (not really necessary, an already running one
   will do) and type M-x desktop-read giving the same directory.

good luck

     I'm a newbie and was wondering if there is any way to
 create a project/filegroup in emacs and save it - so that the
 next time the file is loaded, it loads all the files in the
 project. Pls reply to my id.
