Help for eclipse

I have two questions. The first one needs qualification. One of the great 
things in Vim is the help system. It is very complete, with examples and 
tutorials in many languages, even in Esperanto and Guarani. I wonder whether 
there is a similar help system for Evil. Is there? I understand that the Vim 
community created their help system, and that if Emacs users want one, it is 
necessary to work for it. However, I don't want to start adapting the Vim help 
system to Evil if somebody already did it.

The second question is about Eclipse. When I visited their page early this 
morning, there was a claim saying that Eclipse was downloaded almost 5 millions 
of times. I wonder how many downloads Emacs have. But the question is not this 
one. I use Emacs to serve dynamic html pages. It makes sense, because 
generating dynamic pages requires text processing operations, and Emacs is a 
text editor. Then I tried to compare the speed of Emacs and Eclipse. I must 
have done something wrong, because Eclipse is proving to be very slow in my 

While Emacs start up time is considerably less than 1 second (half a second 
with a lot of plugins), Eclipse is taking 15 seconds, no plugins. Besides this, 
Eclipse takes almost 10 minutes to accept a game project with  20000 lines of 
C. Again, flymake checks for erros almost in real time. To make a long story 
short, Eclipse is proving to be so slow that it is uncomfortable to use 
productively. Is this true? Is Eclipse very slow?

In any case, I need to bench-mark the start up speed of Emacs. Therefore, I 
created a file that worked well under normal conditions. Here it is:

;; File: kill.el
(insert "Hello, world!")

Here is how to use it:

Kostas$ time emacs test.txt -Q -nw -l kill.el

real    0m0.128s
user    0m0.604s
sys     0m0.043s

I want also the startup time of Emacsclient. Therefore I started Emacs daemon. 

emacs -Q --daemon

However, Emacs client does not have a -l opetion. Therefore, I tried something 
like this:

Kostas$ time emacsclient -e '(progn (find-file "ttxt.txt") (insert "Message1") 

real    0m0.014s
user    0m0.001s
sys     0m0.002s
My first question is whether there is a way to put the script inside a file, 
instead of on the command line.
