Might be a good idea. I wonder what the best way to find them is. On
EmacsWiki there are a lot of users that links to their blogs. Maybe
that is a good way?
As you commented above, i'll do best study for me and emacs
family within that ways. Thank you for kind and valuable replies,

One thing I forgot to mention is that learning Emacs on ms windows is
a bit more difficult because you might not have the external programs
needed for useful commands like rgrep etc. I have packed together a
distribution that includes those programs, see

So if anyone reading this is using ms windows this might be a good way
to learn about Emacs. This might be a first step on the road to
GNU/Linux ...


Will your rgrep work with the standard Emacs w32 build? I have most of the gnuwin32 utilities but things like rgrep are just shell scripts like:


exec grep -r "$@"

which I can make into ms batch files but then I don't know what to do with them. Would I be able to use your rgrep in my setup? Can it be stripped out of the Emacsw32 stuff? I got web-browser printing from you and that works fine.
