comment What would make the Simple Emacs Spreadsheet more newbie-friendly?
Belated update; my (incompetent, sorry) patch was merged on 2013-11-20 (also). I don't see it in Emacs24 so I imagine it's slated for v25.

I don't see an email address on your profile page. Once you have the required 20 reputation points, why don't you invite me to chat? (See link at the bottom of this page.)

That didn't come out so well. You can't use source formatting in comments, unfortunately. What's with the "larry" anyway? Here's a quick demo: pastebin.com/DaftBUe1

I don't think you want to use xemacs unless you have compelling legacy reasons to stay on a code base which stopped receiving updates years ago.

Because different options to the rpm command have different semantics. Some expect the name of an installed package, others that of a physical file.

comment How can I delete all lines in a file using vi?
echo | test.txt is not a valid command, unless test.txt is an executable script. I'm guessing you mean echo >test.txt instead?
