 === LEDIT === === LEDIT ===
 +
 +''LEDIT'' is a software package that allows a programmer to inspect, modify, and save Lisp source expressions from within a Maclisp session, abilities Maclisp itself lacks. This is achieved  by calling the Emacs editor from the programmer's Maclisp session.
 +
 +To use LEDIT:
 +
 +  - Start Maclisp and load your source file.
 +  - Evaluate ''(LOAD "LISP:LEDIT.FASL")'' (You may add this line to your LISP.INI file and eliminate this step.)
 +  - Evaluate ''(LEDIT)'' to switch to Emacs.
 +  - Load the source file into Emacs (''^X ^F'').
 +  - View, change, save source with Emacs commands.
 +  - Flag function definitions to update in Maclisp with ''M-Z''.
 +  - Return to Maclisp with ''^X Z''

 +=== Set-up ===

 +If you have set-up your TWENEX session for Maclisp (see above), you must undefine the logical name ''LISP:'' before running InterLisp.
