I picked up emacs for first time in decades last night on ubuntu. It was sweet: opened up in a GUI and I was able to set up CUA mode - but still able to access the CTL-C and CTL-X actions via META-X. Nice.
Now I am trying to achieve the same on mac. But here we end up back with the terminal based version. This is a serious downgrade: e.g. Clipboard c/p does not work properly.
So is there a simple setting I am missing to launch the emacs in its own window and with full gui support?
I did do the brew install thing:
brew install emacs --HEAD --cocoa --srgb
But this is still the same terminal based version.
So @Mark pointed out the order of the parameters above is incorrect. I had copied from another site. The info he gave DOES now install the Emacs.app.

However I am unable to launch it : probably something v simple.
