Rename File in Emacs
First impression people have is that Emacs is an editor.
So in an editor one should just
save as to different name/path. 1
save as is different from renaming a file.
save as creates a copy
of the file with a different name/path. So one has two files with old and new
But rename leaves just one file at thenew path.
Older versions of Emacs (< Emacs 26) did not have this functionality built-in
So either one had to use
dired or people wrote their own functions.
But now (rather from emacs 26 onward) has this built-in via
(and there is
delete-file as well)
Yes, I know one can rename (or delete) the file in VSCode as well :) ↩︎
