To install this package, run in Emacs:
M-x package-install RET crisp RET
Keybindings and minor functions to duplicate the functionality and finger-feel of the CRiSP/Brief editor. This package is designed to facilitate transitioning from Brief to (XE|E)macs with a minimum amount of hassles. Enable this package by putting (require 'crisp) in your .emacs and use M-x crisp-mode to toggle it on or off. This package will automatically load the scroll-all.el package if you put (setq crisp-load-scroll-all t) in your .emacs before loading this package. If this feature is enabled, it will bind meta-f1 to the scroll-all mode toggle. The scroll-all package duplicates the scroll-all feature in CRiSP. Also, the default keybindings for brief/CRiSP override the M-x key to exit the editor. If you don't like this functionality, you can prevent this behavior (or redefine it dynamically) by setting the value of `crisp-override-meta-x' either in your .emacs or interactively. The default setting is t, which means that M-x will by default run `save-buffers-kill-emacs' instead of the command `execute-extended-command'. Finally, if you want to change the string displayed in the mode line when this mode is in effect, override the definition of `crisp-mode-mode-line-string' in your .emacs. The default value is " *Crisp*" which may be a bit lengthy if you have a lot of things being displayed there. All these overrides should go *before* the (require 'crisp) statement.
