As every tinkerer will know, my Emacs configuration is steadily growing.
To get a some sense of having a structure, I divided it in seperated files, each for every category. But I noticed lately that some people organize their configuration in an different way than I do.
Suppose they have the confiugration
foo-configuration.el, they put
(provide 'foo-configuration) at the bottom of the file.
dot-emacs/init.el they call the configuration with
But I do it in the other way. I create
dot-emacs/init.el, I call the configuration with
(load "C:/Dropbox/Emacs/bar-configuration.el") which suits my needs.
But I'm wondering if I'm missing something important (I'm relatively new to Elisp).
Is there any advantage to use
provide/require above the latter?
