Emacs for C#/.NET/Mono

Thought I'd give Mono a try with Mac OSX+Emacs. Of course Emacs won't have the nice formatting Lisp scripts for your code, but you can get them from here: sans instructions. The other link suggested by Mono ( was broken.

Here's how to get it to work:
  • Unzip the zip file from the link above.
  • Edit (or create) your $HOME/.emacs file and add the appropriate sections from zbrad.emac s. You could just add everything.
  • Add the line (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/site-lisp") at the beginning of your .emacs file.
  • Copy the "site-lisp" directory from the downloaded zip and there you go.
You should now be in business. I don't understand why Mr. Merrill didn't provide a README with his fine stuff. Gives emacs a bad name. Filling in these sorts of gaps made Tim O'Reilly famous.
