I didn’t realise Emacs has an elisp repl

When it comes to Emacs, I am an amateur at best, but part of the fun is that I keep discovering new useful functionality. Thanks to a post over at Mastering Emacs, I’m now aware of ielm, which came in very handy when I was trying to build an elisp function that would automatically pull all the packages I regularly use via ELPA if they weren’t installed already.
