I hope to use org files for my configuration. And I found some use (require 'org-install), and some use (require 'org). Any differences?


According to the comments inside org-install.el in Emacs 26.1: "The file org-install is obsolete." There is nothing inside that file except some comments about backwards compatibility, a provide statement and some file-local variables. Therefore, use (require 'org) to load the main library.

Q:  How did I learn about that?

A:  Type M-x find-library RET org-install RET and read the few lines of code.
