Running MIT Scheme under Emacs

Type "M-x run-scheme" to start Scheme as a subprocess. This process communicates with emacs through an interaction buffer called *scheme*. When this buffer is first created it will contain a message indicating how to obtain documentation on the interaction commands. Unlike the ordinary read-eval-print loop, the idea here is that you edit a Scheme program in another buffer and use interaction commands to send part or all of the program to the Scheme process. Be sure the buffer is in Scheme mode; the easiest way to ensure this is to use a file name with extension .scm.

A better indentation style than the default can be enabled by placing

    (setq load-path (cons "/u/cs441/emacs" load-path))
in a file called ".emacs" in your home directory (or "/u/wright/emacs" on the CS Department machines).
