In OSX' iTerm, you can instantly show/hide the window by the (default) alt-space keys.
How can I configure emacs to have similar functionality? I want to run GUI emacs, and be able to show/hide it on whim.

Quicksilver can be used on the Mac to create a global keyboard shortcut to activate Emacs - for example I have F1 to bring up a terminal, F2 to bring up Emacs, F3 to bring up Firefox. With these in place I don't find much of a need to hide applications as the one appears over the top of the old one, but as the previous poster said, you can bind "ns-do-hide-emacs" to hide it.
