Dear CVR,
Could you please elaborate what is auctex and reftex setup as well as how
to use the preview latex in emacs. Currently I am using gvim and is
wasting quite a bit of time compiling each time I edit the tex file and
seeing the dvi file. Does gvim has that facility?, if so I dont have to 
shift to emacs from gvim
