An improvement to Emacs auto-correct11 Jan 2016, by Artur Malabarba.
My Emacs auto-correct is one of the oldest posts on this blog, and I still see it pop up here and there on occasion. Last week, Norman Ramsey asked about an improvement to that command and I figured it’s worth an update post.
As of today, the code in the post will search backwards for a typo, instead of just correcting the current word. So you can invoke it without trouble even if the typo happened several words ago.
