I am very new to Emacs (as of the 25th) and I learned that prelude adds some functionality to the program. But, on github where it is available for download the directions seem unclear and confusing to me. I don't know whether or not I'm using Curl or Wget and I don't know how to use them if I am. I tried entering the provided lines as a Shell command into Emacs as well as just entering the text in to my command prompt. For the shell command in emacs nothing seems to happen, and for command promp is gives the "not an exicutable" splerge. I have downloaded the file from GitHub but I don't quite know what to do with it now that I have it. I use Windows XP if that accounts for anything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
