MicroEmacs may be invoked from the command line to perform a specific set of filtering tasks, under control of a dedicated start up macro, see me(1) and start-up(3). A number of standard macros are provided, most of which are invoked automatically from the editor itself when requested by the user. Having said that, it has not been unknown for a colleague of mine to use the editor as a replacement for a more intelligent sed(1) filter, with 12 hours to go and a huge ugly 3-D geometric database to convert, what better way than run it through a set of MicroEmacs macros to turn it into another database format that can be handled - probably not for the uninitiated, but that person did pull it off and went home for tea !!
