In 1985, with about 512 Ko of memory, it was obvious that Gosling, GNU or other emacs written in Lisp were too big to run on M$-DOG. So I decided to write my own editor that closely works like those I used on VAX Unix at that time. I started with Conroy's MicroEMACS. After a great amount of time, made essentially after hours, EmACT is now a pretty good clone of GNU Emacs. It has all the features that programmers enjoy, like parentheses matching, auto-indent for Lisp, C, C++, compile mode, tags and even a Lisp interpreter which is not however compatible with GNU MockLisp. It can be ported to all UN*X systems (terminal and X-Window) and it runs of course on all Intel based system in text or graphic mode (MSDOS, OS/2 Windows 3.x, Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista and Windows 95/98/Me). Why EmACT? In 1985 I was working for a company named ACT. SOURCE INSTALL: --------------- prompt> sh ./configure # or ./configure --prefix=$HOME prompt> make # make binaries and compile lisp code prompt> make install # you must have be root If it does not work or you're not on unix like system: - With MSVC, compile EmACT using 'nmake nt-msc' at toplevel distribution. - With other systems, go to src and use makefile.xxx for your own compiler. - Put all *.lsp in /usr/local/emact directory (or add EMACSLIB system variable). - Edit startup.lsp to match your needs. - Compile other tools from ./etc/ directory. - Read the doc for more customizations. Latest version should be in: http://www.eligis.com/emacs -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
