File Extension EMACS


File extension: EMACS
File type: Lisp User INIT File

Notes about the EMACS file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The EMACS file type is primarily associated with 'Emacs' by Free Software Foundation, Inc.. Emacs Lisp is a dialect of the Lisp programming language used by the GNU Emacs and XEmacs text editors (often collectively referred to as Emacs). It is used for implementing most of the editing functionality built into Emacs, the remainder being written in C. Users of Emacs commonly write Emacs Lisp code to customize and extend Emacs.
