brew cask install emacs

should be replaced with:

brew install --cask emacs

as the cask subcommand has been removed from homebrew, in favor of a --cask flag.

relevant commit removing the cask subcommand from the usage instructions on the official homebrew github:

Alan, any comments?  Should this be changed, and if so, should we do
it on the release branch?

Thanks.

We don't make any recommendations about installing via homebrew in the
Emacs repository. nextstep/INSTALL, for example, only discusses
compiling from source.

I believe this is purely in reference to the website. I don't have
any special insight into homebrew, but I see this:

    breton:/Users/alan>brew cask install emacs
    Updating Homebrew...
    [...]
    Error: Unknown command: cask

so I guess the requested change is correct.

I have no idea how to update the website myself.

Thanks.  I think I updated the website, although I don't yet see the
change in my browser.  maybe it takes some time for the changes to
propagate?

I see the change here. So all is good, I think.

Now I see it as well.  So yes, it takes a few minutes to update.
