Yeah, I second that - totally worth it !

To compile my LFS system, I used a shell under emacs - in half a window -
the other half emacs window had LFS-Book-5.0 to refer to
Copy-paste was then pretty simple.

However, I have a feeling that when the shell window got too much logged
information into it, the entire build process used to get slow - only a
hunch though. Else, things were pretty confortable this way.

Good luck !
