I'm starting to learn how to use emacs (on Mac OS 10.4)
and I found that you can load something called python-mode.el which
looks like it can help when writing Python
code in emacs. I'm hoping it can color python syntax as well as
indent it correctly, etc.
My problems are:
1. Where should you place the 'python-mode.el' file? I downloaded a
folder from 'sourceforge.net' that contains 4
files (python-mode.el, doctest-mode.el, pycomplete.el and
pycomplete.py). I couldn't find any installation
instructions anywhere. Do I use all 4 files or just the one and where
should it go? One web-site said the 'python-
mode.el' file needed to be compiled before being moved to whereever it
needs to go. How does one compile these things?
2. All the web-sites I found about installing this said I should
change my .emacs file which should be located in
my home folder. I can't find a .emacs file anywhere on my machine.
The only thing close to it is a .emacs.d folder
which contains an autosave folder. Does anyone know where this .emacs
file is located? Or do I need to manually create one?
Thanks for looking at my questions.
