Hello folks,

After long frustration emacs in terminal in MacOS X, I finally figured
it out. The solution is turn on "Use option as meta key" in preference
panel. This is trivial and the tricky part is this: swap command and
option key in only in terminal. I wrote a small SIMBL bundle to
fulfill this swap trick. Here's the simple procedure.

1. google InputManger, SIMBL and install them.
2. fetch
3. decompress the zip and install the bundle into ~/Library/
Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/ directory (create one if it doesn't
4. restart your terminal.

And the source code is also available at
Good luck!
