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.
- 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.
- 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 a command means confirmation is required
before it can be executed. This is done to protect
beginners from surprises.
