AUCTeX is an integrated environment for editing LaTeX and TeX files.

This file documents AUCTeX version 11.55.

Although AUCTeX contains a large number of features, there are no reasons to despair. You can continue to write TeX and LaTeX documents the way you are used to, and only start using the multiple features in small steps. AUCTeX is not monolithic, each feature described in this manual is useful by itself, but together they provide an environment where you will make very few LaTeX errors, and makes it easy to find the errors that may slip through anyway.

If you want to make AUCTeX aware of style files and multi-file documents right away, insert the following in your ‘.emacs’ file.

(setq TeX-auto-save t)
(setq TeX-parse-self t)
(setq-default TeX-master nil)

NOTE: This documentation is preliminary. It should however cover most important points. Corrections or perhaps rewrites of sections are VERY WELCOME.

There is a mailing list for discussion about AUCTeX and announcement of alpha releases, write to ‘auc-tex-request@sunsite.dk’ to join it. Send contributions to ‘auc-tex@sunsite.dk’.

Bug reports, suggestions for new features, and pleas for help should go to either ‘auc-tex_mgr@sunsite.dk’ (the AUCTeX managers), or to ‘auc-tex@sunsite.dk’ (the mailing list) if they might have general interest. Please use the command M-x TeX-submit-bug-report RET to report bugs if possible.
