The MH-E Manual
MH-E has changed much since the old MH-E manual was written for version 5.0.2 in a format for the MH book.
The second major update of the manual was streamlined and reorganized to reflect the organization of other Emacs manuals. It was also updated with all of the changes and new features introduced through MH-E version 8.0. It grew from 90 pages to 136 pages.
This manual is available in the following formats:
- formatted in HTML with one web page per node.
- formatted in HTML entirely on one web page (764k characters).
- formatted in PDF (952k characters).
- the last released documentation source package from which you can build the documentation in Info, HTML, or PDF formats.
If you download the MH-E documentation and build the Info
files, then you can view the manual in Emacs by
adding /path/to/mh-e-doc/info to
INFOPATH environment variable and running "C-h
i g (mh-e) RET".
You can also obtain additional help within Emacs:
- Use "
?" for a short help screen on the keybindings. Prefix characters also have help screens (for example, "
F ?"). In the MH-Letter buffer, use "
- Use "
C-h k" to get help on a particular keybinding.
- Use "
C-h m" to get complete help for the current mode, including all of the keybindings.
- Run "
M-x mh-customize RET" to see all of the customization variables that are available to you.
Also, read the MH-E-NEWS file to see what has changed since you last used MH-E. Actually, if you aren't too impatient, read this first!
