Integrated environment for writing LaTeX using GNU Emacs

AUC TeX is a comprehensive customizable integrated environment for writing input files for LaTeX using GNU Emacs. AUC TeX lets you run TeX/LaTeX and other LaTeX-related tools, such as a output filters or post processor from inside Emacs. Especially running LaTeX' is interesting, as AUC TeX lets you browse through the errors TeX reported, while it moves the cursor directly to the reported error, and displays some documentation for that particular error. This will even work when the document is spread over several files. AUC TeX automatically indents your LaTeX-source’, not only as you write it – you can also let it indent and format an entire document. It has a special outline feature, which can greatly help you `getting an overview’ of a document. Apart from these special features, AUC TeX provides a large range of handy Emacs macros, which in several different ways can help you write your LaTeX documents fast and painlessly. All features of AUC TeX are documented using the GNU Emacs online documentation system. That is, documentation for any command is just a key click away! AUC TeX is written entirely in Emacs-Lisp, and hence you can easily add new features for your own needs.
