org latex

I am really digging org-mode, and just tried out it's excellent LaTeX export command:

C-c C-e l


M-x org-export-as-latex

You can then make this into a PDF with:

pdflatex file.tex

Makes quite a nice looking PDF for almost no effort. I'm going to use this for writing the Marsyas Cookbook that I've started to write.

I <3 GDB and I <3 Emacs, and together it's squared.

Emacs Mode for GDB

But I'm having a little trouble because I use a text-mode only emacs (-nw forever). Mainly I can't get it to go to the line in the source file when I press C-c C-l. If anyone has some tips for me, please leave them in the comments below.

A cmake-mode for looking at CMake files.


circle hack in emacs
