The code in this chapter was concise, but packed with new ideas.
We learned to construct lists using the
cons function, take
them apart with
cdr, and scrutinized
them to find that they were built of pairs underneath.
We also stretched our Emacs manual muscles searching for
string related predicates, and exercised our debugging
skills to decipher error messages.
With lists under your belt, you’ve now well and truly covered the Emacs Lisp fundamentals.
In the next section, we’ll learn to use these tools with the Emacs display architecture to visualise our patterns.
For now, head down to your local bakery, grab the fattest croissant and take a well-earned rest.
