Customizing Key Bindings

   This section describes "key bindings" which map keys to commands,
and the "keymaps" which record key bindings.  It also explains how to
customize key bindings.

   Recall that a command is a Lisp function whose definition provides
for interactive use.  Like every Lisp function, a command has a function
name which usually consists of lower case letters and hyphens.

* Keymaps
Generalities. The global keymap.
* Prefix Keymaps
Keymaps for prefix keys.
* Local Keymaps
Major and minor modes have their own keymaps.
* Minibuffer Maps
The minibuffer uses its own local keymaps.
* Rebinding
How to redefine one key's meaning conveniently.
* Init Rebinding
Rebinding keys with your init file, `.emacs'.
* Function Keys
Rebinding terminal function keys.
* Mouse Buttons
Rebinding mouse buttons in Emacs.
* Disabling
Disabling a command means confirmation is required before it can be executed. This is done to protect beginners from surprises.
