17 Help

So many commands, so many buffers! This chapter describes few more commands that should help you not to get lost.

M-x guix-help

Display a buffer with the summary of the available Emacs-Guix commands. Buttons in this buffer allow you to run commands and to look at their docstrings and manual entries.

M-x guix-info

Show this Emacs-Guix info manual. With prefix argument, show the Guix info manual.

M-x guix-switch-to-buffer

Switch to one of the Emacs-Guix buffers. This is like a usual switch-to-buffer (bound to C-x b by default), except it completes only Guix buffers names. If you are going to use this command, it is probably better to bind it to some key, for example:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-x B") 'guix-switch-to-buffer)
M-x guix-extended-command

Run Emacs-Guix command. This is like M-x (see M-x in The GNU Emacs Manual), except it completes only Guix command names. And again, this is not a very useful command unless it is bound to some key, for example:

(global-set-key (kbd "M-X") 'guix-extended-command)
