The manual page mentions a built-in screen editor (under the
ENVIRONMENT -> TERM section). There are also references to it on the
web. I assume it's gone, since I can't find it, nor anything about it
Is the source for it still available somewhere. Does clisp-1999-07-22
(at cons.org) have it?

it has been gone for about 5 years.
The editor was removed because it was a too primitive remake of
terminal-mode emacs. The two most annoying features were that tabs
didn't get displayed correctly, and it didn't get notified when the
xterm window was resized.
If you want CL-Emacs, you would probably be better off making CLISP
interface with GNU Emacs via FFI.
No, I have no idea how to do this.

I'm mostly happy with emacs as is. The reason I asked is that I am
using clisp as a login shell (with dispatch-macro-characters and
read-from-delimited-stream for running programs conveniently via
I would like to somehow enable indentation while running clisp on the
console or an xterm.
I can see 2 ways of doing it:
2) String-output streams
I just wanted to see how these things were done in the screen-editor,
but it doesn't matter.
