Well, it is a thought to read the documentation
that way, and have the whole program file in
a single buffer, which operates like a regular
file and doesn't disappear when you do something
else or bring something else up thru some
interface which you aren't that apt with...

But after doing `C-x n w', and even `text-mode'
on top of that, you still have to disable
`read-only-mode' in order to edit it. And no
one has suggested that. So you hear me loud and
clear out there? DON'T DO THAT! Ha ha ha :)
