Unhappy I'm very sorry I'm so very stupid, but...


HOW TO MAKE NEW FILE IN EMACS, OR DO I NEED TO OPEN READILY MADE PROGRAM???
I'm very sorry.
I have used only Kate for editing (in my 1. month at programming) and g++/gcc for translating so far, time to try something else.

It looks like you can just type what you want, and then save it as a new file.

Why not try vi?

I always suggest anyone using Linux or Unix to learn the basics of vi though, there might be times when its the only editor available to use...
And who cares about looks, it works right.. well IMO at least:

vi = fast, reliable and very flexible....
