TeX in Emacs

Using TeX in Emacs

On the CLUU system we don't use the standard TeX modes in Emacs but instead AUCTeX.

To get the same in an Emacs on another computer, follow these three steps.

Then you’ll see LaTeX/P in the mode line, where the P stands for PDF, when it is set to produce PDFs.

You can of course find the AUCTeX documentation on the net, but also from the menus in Emacs when using it: LaTeX->Read the AUCTeX Manual.

Note in particular C-c C-c to do something with the file. The first you use that command you will run LaTeX on the file. If everything went fine you will instead choose View the next time to view the results.
