comment How to get AucTex to prompt me for a name, when inserting an environment using Ctrl-C, Ctrl-E?
Thank you very much. It doesn't work for me, but I really appreciate your help. I'll just do without this feature for the time being.

I have added the parsing directives to .emacs, but to no avail. Maybe I don't understand the way your code is supposed to be invoked. How am I supposed to use it from within emacs?

I don't know what "enabled parsing of files" means, or how to do it.

I've followed your instruction (i.e. did a dummy edit and saved the buffer), but still, it doesn't work. My AUCTex version is 11.87.2012-12-04.

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me. I use Emacs 24.3.1

comment Aligning several '=' symbols across two lines
@egreg: I always use \left and \right with brackets and braces. I do it for the following reason. I once took a programming course and I was taught that even though it's legal to use an "if" statement without braces, I should always use braces, because even if today the "if" body consists of only a single statement, in the future I may add to it and then I might forget to add the braces. So extra braces don't hurt and they may save some headache in the future. This is why I use them in LaTeX too. As Thorsten Donig shows above, there's hardly any difference in the output with or without \left.

comment Aligning several '=' symbols across two lines
@egreg: Why are the \left and \right useless? Do they have any cons? What would be a suitable circumstance to use them?
