This document is targeted at the Linux user interested in learning a
bit about Emacs and trying it out. This actually began as the outline
of a brief tutorial that I was to give at a Toledo Area Linux User
Group meeting: http://www.talug.org/. It has since grown a bit as the
result of the helpful feedback I have received from the community. See
the Credits section for details.

Having said that, there is virtually nothing Linux-specific in this
document. It applies to virtually all flavors of Unix and even Emacs
running on Microsoft Windows. But since this document is part of the
Linux Documentation Project, I make a point of saying that it was
developed for Linux users--because it was.    More detail...
