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.
