AUCTeX is a package for writing and formatting TeX files in GNU Emacs and XEmacs. It supports various TeX macro packages including AMS-TeX, LaTeX, Texinfo, ConTeXt, and docTeX (short for writing LaTeX packages with the doc style or the ltxdoc class). AUC TeX lets you run TeX/LaTeX and other LaTeX-related tools, such as a output filters or post processor, from inside Emacs. You can 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 works even if the document is spread over several files. AUCTeX 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 helps you to get an overview of a document. It also provides a large range of Emacs macros.
