My Dot Files
I don't know any geek worth his weight in arsenic that doesn't put all of his/her collection of dot files under source code control. By putting this stuff up on Github makes it trivial to share between different computers and share with the world.
What's in this project?
Mostly startup scripts for Emacs and Zsh. If you are interested in how I configure Emacs, start with emacs.org. While the configuration files look like a document, that is the basis for my Emacs Lisp code.
Where is the Code?
My scripts and other dot files usually use blurbs and blippets from multiple sources on these here intertubes, and I find that when I get back around to updating them years ago, I don't always have the background for maintaining any particular blarp.
So I use a literate programming approach based on the Babel Project (which is built on org-mode which, incidently, only runs in Emacs). Each source file is tangled out to the destination in my home directory.
Can I use your files?
You may, as this collection is under a creative commons license. However, you probably don't want to take complete files (or even fork this project), as I have amassed a quite a bit of Lisp code for my environment. Instead, gander through the documented output for the files, and copy and paste anything that you find interesting.
