I am using Prelude Emacs and it has different configuration files. I keep my configuration files inside ~/.emacs.d/personal/. . Say, I have a command (menu-bar-mode 1) that enables menu bar inside config1.el but later I unintentionally put another command in another configuration file config2.el in which there ise (menu-bar-mode 0) that disables menu bar of emacs. Which configuration file overtakes other?


For that kind of sexp (S-expression - it's not a command), the last one that is evaluated is the one that "wins".

  • Is there a way of knowing repeated S-expression in different el files? and what is the command of knowing the order of directories loaded in emacs? How do I know that which el file is evaluated last? Is it according to alphabetical order of file name? – ofenerci Aug 26 '17 at 17:00
  • I don't understand your questions in the comment. I suggest that you formulate separate clear questions for them. – Drew Aug 27 '17 at 1:29
