1) in terminal type, emacs --version

2) in emacs, type "M-x" and then type global-font-lock-mode  M stands for "meta" and is generally the ALT key.

3) what the other guy said

I am running Mac os x lion and I want to use emacs to try to write some shell scripts for work. I am new to emacs so I would like help with some very basic things.

1.      What is the command to determine the version of emacs that is provided with lion?

2.      How do I enable color highlighting for syntext?

3       How do I get a list of the command sequences that auto generate things like "for", "while" and "do" loops for   the various languages (C++, ruby, etc) I might use?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
