Description

This document provides a partial -- and not comprehensive -- list
of implementations of Emacs-type editors and literature about such
editors. You can help make it more comprehensive by sending me
additional information and/or updates.

This document is also gradually acquiring the role of a repository
of (at least) Emacs-related history. While that subject requires a
book to itself, this document will probably serve until someone
(_not_ me!) writes one.

This document is available via anonymous FTP and WWW. See above
URLs.

To be included in this list:

o A piece of literature should be a book, manual, article, paper,
or something that covers (or mentions) Emacs in particular or
text editing techniques in general. Specifically excluded are
items that are only of interest to non-Emacs users (a book on
"how to use vi") or vendor manuals for Emacs implementations
(as those are implicitly included in the implementations).
Non-vendor (i.e., third party) manuals are included.

o An implementation must either (1) be "advertised" as being an
Emacs-type editor or (2) be extensible and come with an Emacs
command set "mode" already written. Editors that are extensible
but do not come with such a mode (i.e., you have to write it
yourself) are not listed.

The following information is included for each implementation:

The *NAME* line contains the name of the implementation.
Implementations are listed alphabetically by name. Acronym
expansions are listed in ()s. Other acronyms:

TECO TAPE Editor and COrrector
(later: Text Editor and COrrector)
EMACS Editor MACroS

The *LAST* *CHANGED/VERIFIED* line contains the date that the entry was
last changed or an explict "looks ok to me" was received. This
field was added 1994-12-20, so all entries were initialized to that
value.

The *ORIGINAL* *DISTRIBUTION* is the date (or partial date) of the
first release. It is in YYYY-MM-DD format.

The *VERSION* is the latest known version. It is probably out of
date.

The *BASE* *LANGUAGE* is the language that you need a compiler or
interpreter for in order to use the editor. If the software is
distributed as a pre-compiled binary, this should be the language
that the program was written in.

The *IMPLEMENTATION* *LANGUAGE* is the language that the bulk of the
implementation is written in.

The *EXTENSION* *LANGUAGE* is the (often custom or modified) language
that the is used when altering or writing extensions to the
implementation. It is "none" if there is no extension language.

The *SCOPE* is either "command set" or "extensible." In the first
case, the implementation offers a basic Emacs command set; however
the user cannot readily change what the commands do. In the second
case, the user can fully control what all of the commands do.

The *REQUIREMENTS* is a brief characterization of what hardware or
software is required. The purpose of this item is to offer a broad
selection key; not be a comprehensive list. You should consult the
implementation (for free software) or the vendor to find out
whether a specific implementation works in your environment. For
example:

o "UNIX" refers to any version of UNIX(tm) from any vendor.
o "IBM PC" is used to cover MS/DOS, OS/2, and Windows
implementations.

(Starting Dec 1994 the list will support an additional level of
detail for IBM PCs.)

o "DOS" refers to MS/DOS support. May also run under Windows or
OS/2 in some mode. - "Windows" refers to Microsoft Windows support.
o "OS/2" refers to to OS/2 support. - "Windows NT" refers to
Microsoft Windows NT support.

The *ORGANIZATION* is the name of and contact information for the
implementor OR >CURRENT MAINTAINER<.

The *STATUS* is one of

o no longer available: Self-explanatory.
o free: The implementation is available to most people at no
charge. Even such "free" implementations may have restrictions:
consult information about the particular implementation. Where
available, information on how to obtain a copy is also listed.
o not free: The implementation is for sale. Contact the vendor
for specifics.

Many of the names of the implementations in this list are
trademarked. Specific trademarks are not called out.

Full source code is available for all of the free implementations.
Source availability varies among the not free implementations:
check with the vendor before you buy.

This is a bare-bones Japanese version of EMACS. It's missing all
the cool GNU-stuff (including help), but it does do split-
screening and all of the cursor/text editing commands that I
tried. It's a 86.7K (yes, that's kilobytes!) download. A very
sweet blend of EMACS and Macintosh technology.

Version 20.6. This is by far the most comprehensive and
fastest version of EMACS for the Mac. It is also the most
actively developed version I know of. Even mail can be
implemented by remapping mail calls to Eudora-Lite Applescripts.
The only bummer is that there is no GNUS and no printing!

organization/author:

Stacken Computer Club
c/o NADA
S-100 44 Stockholm
Sweden
***@stacken.kth.se

_Note:_ the name is an abbreviation of "Anti-MISAER" (where "AE" is
the "ae" glyph). "Misaer" is Swedish (svenska) for "piece of junk,
or deep shit functionality" (translation provided by the person who
told me about this) The name thus means "not a piece of junk."
Tops10, RSTS, Norsk Data versions are free, send them a 1/2 inch,
2400-foot magnetic tape and return postage VMS version is $1000 US
(the money supports their DEC10 museum)

Addendum from Jesper Larsson <***@dna.lth.se>: This is
not quite correct. First, if "misAEr" is the Swedish word, "AE"
should not be the "ae" glyph (not used in Swedish -- maybe it's
spelled that way in Norwegian), but an "a" with two dots above
it. Secondly, this word actually means "destitution" or "penury".
It is closely related to the English word "misery". [ I am _not_
going to get in the middle of a how to translate Swedish to
English issue here -- Craig ]

a bit of history...the source was posted to the net by James
Gosling (in about 1980-ish, I think). It was modifed by Barry,
within Digital Equipment Corporation. It ran on VMS and was
available only internally to Digital. The language changed to
Bliss-32 (better performance on VMS) and then to C (for
portability) and now C++. Barry left Digital in 1994 and about
then (or perhaps a little sooner?) released to the public.

Emacs for NeXTstep

name: Emacs for NeXTstep (aka Emacs.app)
last changed/verified: 1995-06-15
original distribution: 1994-04-24
version: 4.1
base language: Objective C
implementation language: Lisp
extension language: Lisp
scope of implementation: extensible
hardware/software requirements: Any hardware/software which GNU Emacs
19.28 runs on in general. To use the added NeXTstep features
requires NeXTstep 3.x or later (for best results 3.3 or later)
on any hardware platform supported by NeXTstep.

free anonymous FTP:
- Binary package for m68k, i386, hppa and sparc NeXTstep machines on
ftp.cs.orst.edu in
pub/next/binaries/editors/Emacs_for_NeXTstep_4.1.pkg.NIHS.b.tar.gz.
- Source on ftp.cs.orst.edu in
pub/next/sources/editors/Emacs_for_NeXTstep_4.1.src.NIHS.s.tar.gz.

_Note:_ Emacs for NeXTstep 4.1 is a superset of GNU Emacs 19.28
with which it shares most of the code. The main change is that this
Emacs supports the NeXTstep window system on the same level as GNU
Emacs supports the X window system. It continues to fully support
the X window system as well.

Also, this may be new information on the same release: Emacs.app, a
full port of GNU Emacs to NeXTstep also supporting NS features,
runs on Intel, NeXT, and HP hardware.

There are also two mailing lists for Emacs for NS,
<emacs-for-ns-***@lists.princeton.edu> and
<emacs-for-ns-***@lists.princeton.edu>. The former is intended
for general discussion and allows anybody to post. The latter
restricts posting and should contain only a handful of
announcements of new releases every year. Both of these lists are
handled by the CREN Listproc which means that you can subscribe and
unsubscribe automatically. For example, to subscribe to
emacs-for-ns-users I'd send a message with the content `SUBSCRIBE
emacs-for-ns-users Carl Edman' to <***@lists.princeton.edu>.
For more details write to the same address with the content `HELP'.

This is the second public release of Emacs for NeXTstep (**).

** So why in the world is it called version 4.1 ? To avoid
confusion with the older Emacs.app interface (lately up to
version 3.1) which is completely unrelated except for the fact
that its author, Michael Brouwer, has been a major contributor to
this project as well. And even he has replaced the old Emacs.app
with Emacs for NeXTstep.

Note: this a 1986 fork (sic!) of Conroy's MicroEmacs. The name
comes from a company the author worked for when starting this
development. The motivation was to implement a Lisp-friendly
editor on MS-DOS PC to write programs for Le-Lisp dialect.
It is now the editor of choice for OpenLisp
(see http://www.eligis.com).

integrated an Emacs-like editor, command line history, etc. into a
very compact program. These features are now common-place in modern
shells.

From a user:

...and I think it is worth to mention that JED (which is the
"GNUishest" of all the non-GNU implementations -- almost *every*
keystroke is like within GNU/XEmacs) has the complete editing
part of the AUCTEX-package built in, with BibTeX-mode, so if you
have to edit La/BibTeX-source outside your home/business, JED
might be your first choice.

And, what's more than that: JED runs on the smallest PC systems
used these days: in the library etc. I take my Toshiba T1000
(which was the first laptop and has a 4.77 MHz CPU in it: 512 KB
RAM, *no* HD and a single FD) -- and works like a charm since it
loads the necessary modules into memory only when needed (dired
etc.).

Unlike "freemacs" (which was my favourite editor before JED) it
can manage files over 64 KBytes in size and it is further under
development.

Since it runs on Linux to (with a special XJed binary) I use it
for quick tasks on my desktop, too.

_Note:_ With the multilingual support now merged into NTEmacs in
20.4, it is no longer necessary to use a special version of Emacs
for other languages, but MULE users may find upgrading to Meadow
easier than to NTEmacs because of slight differences in the way
they handle fonts. Meadow also has a couple of features that are
still missing from NTEmacs, such as support for native IMEs and
the special keys on Japanese keyboards.

_Note:_ NTEmacs is currently based on GNU Emacs version 19.17 As of
10/8/94, a beta test version of Emacs 19.27 ported to Windows NT is
available from june.cs.washington.edu:/pub/voelker/trial. The port
will be merged into a forthcoming release of GNU Emacs.

Latest versions are 19.34, 20.3 and 20.4 which may be for Win 95
and Win NT only.

cs.washington.edu links are probably broken but retained for history.

_Note_ from Carl Hoffman: Probably Multics Emacs' greatest claims
to fame are (1) having been the first to popularize the notion of
using a Lisp-like extension language which non-expert programmers
could use and understand, and (2) originating certain constructs
(e.g. "save-excursion", etc.) which today survive in GNU Emacs.

_Note_ from Bernard Greenberg: Multics Emacs was implemented in
Multics MacLisp, also known as Version 2 Lisp. Multics Emacs was
the first and only Multics Software Product in Lisp -- PL/I was the
official system language.

The notion of using Lisp for a mainframe product whose native
language was not Lisp was radical at the time. I chose Lisp because
of the possibility of implementing many small, cheap, modular,
easily-replaceable functions (not a possibility in PL/I), having
found this to be a major feature of an earlier private tool I
implemented in Multics MacLisp.

The notion of using Lisp on the Lisp machine (for Eine, and later
Zwei) was a requirement, not an innovation. It did not speak to the
issues of the suitability of Lisp for such a task, nor to that of
what would be the best language for such a task. The idea of
-choosing- Lisp for a mainframe editor implementation was innovated
here. The idea of augmenting Multics TECO, and that of writing a
TECO-like editor gut in flat-out PL/I were rejected by me in favor
of a Lisp program that implemented editor functionality.

Inspired by the TECO in which EMACS (on ITS, then the only program
using that name) was implemented, I designed a TECO-like control
and "point" manipulation model in a Lisp framework, which I thought
was natural and obvious, not at all similar to the buffer-pointer
passing model of the Lisp Machine editors. The natural combination
of Lisp macrology and scoping with this type of model proved to be
flexible, powerful, and appealing: this model caught on, and is now
the basis of everything in the world; the Lisp machine's did not.
The intellectual lineage of GNU Emacs, in these regards, comes
directly from James Gosling's Emacs, which came directly from (and
was credited to) Multics Emacs.

I rank the significant innovations of Multics Emacs as: (1)
Explicitly-designed extension languages, which could be understood
and used by non-experts. (2) Lisp as an editor implementation
language. (3) Lisp and Lisp-macros as an extension language. (4) A
control regime and macrology, including many names (e.g.,
"save-excursion"), that have become today become semi-standard
through GNU Emacs and other systems.

Major extensions that became part of the product should also be
credited to Richard Lamson, Gary Palter, and William York, who
became my guerilla band, back then.

_Note:_ Win-Emacs is derived from XEmacs 19.6 (nee Lucid Emacs).
Win-Emacs is a native MS-Window app which supports multiple
windows, fonts, code highlighting, arbitrary keymapping, DDE,
winsock, long filenames, drag-and-drop, etc. Version. 1.5 is a
Win32s app with most Unix features (e.g. asynch. subprocesses). The
free version of Win-Emacs is based on a nagware X emulator: a nag
screen pops up every half-hour; otherwise it is precisely identical
to the supported commercial version of Win-Emacs. Debatable whether
this should be moved into the "versions that cost" category.

Ben Wing, the main author of Win-Emacs, is now the most productive
active developer of XEmacs. Most features of Win-Emacs have been
added to XEmacs.

Z80EMACS is a port of microemacs 3.6 to the CP/M operating system.
Microemacs keeps all data in memory, and CP/M must live in a 64KB
address space. By clever use of overlays and byte-squeezing and
tuning, Z80EMACS is able to edit files of size 30KB! microemacs 3.6
had no facility for remapping the keyboard bindings. Z80EMACS does
it with an offline utility. Z80EMACS uses overlays extensively, but
the most frequently used commands are all either in the root
segment or in one particular overlay. Since this overlay is usually
already in memory, performance is quite good, even when running
from floppies. Z80EMACS has the ability to edit multiple files,
display multiple windows, and do keyboard macros, among other
things. This makes it the spiffiest CP/M editor you could ever hope
to see. Z80EMACS comes with source and binaries; it was compiled
with AZTEC C, which few CP/Mmers have, so the binaries are more
likely to be useful than the source.

This editor identifies itself as "Emacs", and has HP-style soft
labels for the first eight function keys hard-bound to "file
commands," "window commands," "buffer commands," etc. Versions 1.1
and 2.1 are known to exist. Other versions may also have escaped.
1.1 was written in Microsoft C and 8088 assembler 1.0 (or was that
2.0?) in about 1985. 2.1 was written using Microsoft C 3.0 in about
1986. All versions work quite usably, despite fatal bugs in some
commands. (Memory limits and large files can cause death,
"ESC-digit" causes immediate death.) ("If it dies when you do that,
stop doing it!")

Description

This document provides a list of implementations of RPN, RPL,
and HP calculators for other systems. You can help make it more
comprehensive by sending me additional information and/or updates.

To be included in this list, an implementation must:

o implement at least a "standard" 4-level RPN calculator.
Minor variations (e.g., 3 or 5 levels) do not preclude being
listed. Implementations that include both RPN and
algebraic modes are eligible.

o implement an RPL calculator.

o implement a "clone" (or near-clone) of any Hewlett-Packard
calculator, even if it is an algebraic-only model.

The following information is included for each implementation:

The *NAME* line contains the name of the implementation.
Implementations are listed alphabetically by name. If the
implementation emulates or approximates a specific calculator
and it is not obvious from the name which calculator is emulated,
the emulated calculator model is given in parentheses.

The *LAST* *CHANGED/VERIFIED* line contains the date that the
entry was last changed or an explict "looks ok to me" was received
by the FAQ maintainer.

The *ORIGINAL* *DISTRIBUTION* is the date (or partial date) of the
first release. It is in YYYY-MM-DD format.

The *VERSION* is the latest known version. It is probably out of
date.

The *ENVIRONMENT* is the operating environment. This is a very
high-level description: consult the documentation on the
product for any specifics.

The *ORGANIZATION* is the name of and contact information for the
implementor or current Maintainer.

The *STATUS* is one of

o no longer available: Self-explanatory.
o free: The implementation is available to most people at no
charge. Even such "free" implementations may have restrictions:
consult information about the particular implementation. Where
available, information on how to obtain a copy is also listed.
o shareware: Self-explanatory.
o not free: The implementation is for sale. Contact the vendor
for specifics.

Many of the names of the implementations in this list are
trademarked. Specific trademarks are not called out.

The site http://www.hp41.org also has a list.

Some (well, many) implementations cross categories. In general, they
are only listed once (but I'm sure that there are exceptions). Do a
search to relevant entries in other places.
