Functions to comment code in Emacs

In this screen cast I demonstrate the main commenting functions that are exposed by the built-in newcomment library. Apart from the defaults, I also discuss the customisations I have introduced and my custom “do what I mean” function that I implemented to suit my use-case.

This demo also shows some practical ways of accessing documentation in Emacs, for libraries, key bindings, variables, functions. This is the “self-documenting” editor, after all…

And here is the link to my configuration file, with all the settings I showed in the video as well as everything else from previous screen casts: protesilaos.com/dotemacs.
