Emacs modes

Some Emacs modes I like.

Types of Emacs modes: * enhancing viewing * enhancing editing * software by itself, i.e. essentially a self-contained function using Emacs as a platform

follow-mode split a frame to two vertical windows that show the same buffer by C-x 3, then M-x follow-mode edit parts of a long file that are vertically far apart editing
shell M-x shell run a shell through an Emacs buffer software
whitespace-mode M-x whitespace-mode display various kinds of whitespace characters viewing
