Calc is normally bound to the M-# key. To set up this key binding, include the following command in your `.emacs' or `lisp/default' file. (This is done automatically by `make private' or `make public', respectively.)
(global-set-key "\e#" 'calc-dispatch)
calc-dispatch actually works as a prefix for various
two-key sequences. If you have a convenient unused function key on
your keyboard, you may wish to bind
calc-dispatch to that as
well. You may even wish to bind other specific Calc functions like
quick-calc to other handy function keys.
Even if you bind
calc-dispatch to other keys, it is best to
bind it to M-# as well if you possibly can: There are references
to M-# all throughout the Calc manual which would confuse novice
users if they didn't work as advertised.
Another key binding issue is the DEL key. Some installations
use a different key (such as backspace) for this purpose. Calc
normally scans the entire keymap and maps all keys defined like
DEL to the
calc-pop command. However, this may be
slow. You can set the variable
nil to cause only the actual DEL key to be mapped to
calc-pop; this will speed loading of Calc.
