JOVE (Emacs) macros


What are JOVE macros? How do I set one and use it? Can someone go through the steps of creating a really simple one?

You mean as in Jonathan's Own Version of Emacs? https://manpages.debian.org/jessie/jove/jove.1.en.html

Since it's emacs, it probably supports standard emacs macros.

Rather than worry about what they are, how to do it, first decide what you need an emacs macro for.

apropos macro

How am I supposed to decide what I want to use a macro for if I really don't know what it is and I don't know what it can do?

It's just automated steps.
