In the basic setup of jed when you press ALT-F (i.e. Alt key at the same time as letter "f") it opens the File menu. I didn't want that. I wanted it to be like in Emacs where ALT-F means skip-word.

The README said to set ALT_CHAR = 27; like this FAQ said. Well, that didn't work. After some more google searching I found out how to do it!:

() = evalfile("emacs");           % Emacs-like bindings

Now it works like I think it should. I write it here because I'll probably forget for the next time.

Jed is the editor I use the most when not working in a graphical environment. Almost all of the code to this website has been developed using jed.
