        I am trying  to set up Emacs so it will  be the default editor
on my system --  as oppossed to Vile.  So I added  the following in my
machines /etc/bashrc:

,----[ in my /etc/bashrc:
| EDITOR=emacs
| export EDITOR

        So I decided to try it out with crontab.  I typed crontab -e
and wrote a new crontab, typed C-x C-s, and C-x C-c.  The file was
saved, but my crontab remained empty.  Is this an issue with the way
that emacs is set up on my system, or is it a crontab issue?

Thanks in advance,
