The argument is not against Emacs, but Emacs Lisp. Huge difference. | I can't see that anything has occured that suggest that programming | can be done better with anything else but written text. Well, I think GUIs to GUI builders that let me worry less about the stupid and repetitive code that is so often required to make these things fly at all is a huge win. | And because I do not see any other workable approach one may ask if | programming by writing down text isn't the optimal thing. It depends on your typing speed and accuracy. Some people are incredibly inept typers. In fact, so incredibly inept that using a freaking electronic _rodent_ and looking at the same stupid menus over and over and over is faster than typing to these people. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
