2 Installing

Flymake is packaged in a single file, flymake.el.

To install/update Flymake, place flymake.el to a directory somewhere on Emacs load path. You might also want to byte-compile flymake.el to improve performance.

Also, place the following line in the .emacs file.

     (require 'flymake)

You might also map the most frequently used Flymake functions, such as flymake-goto-next-error, to some keyboard shortcuts:

     (global-set-key [f3] 'flymake-display-err-menu-for-current-line)
     (global-set-key [f4] 'flymake-goto-next-error)
