Emacs Menus helps each member of the programming team - a computer and a person - optimize what it, he, or she does best and interface smoothly with the other half of the team.
Since the need for this information is greatest just as the user is about to type, Emacs Menus builds an agent into the text editor that dynamically computes the available choices using knowledge of the programming language and knowledge of the interactive context.
As demonstrated by Emacs Menus, much more can be done by taking into account the dynamic context - exactly where the user is in typing the program, what has already been typed, what variables are available at the moment, and more.
So I implemented Emacs Menus on top of an Emacs-like text editor.
Image EMACS can be viewed as an extreme form of a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) page-composition system.
The linear text-editing operations of Image EMACS are patterned after those of the text editor EMACS .
The typographic facilities of Image EMACS are not currently patterned after any particular system.
Text editing in Image EMACS is based on two observations: Many text editing operations do not make use of the character labels of the characters being
Richard Stallman said, "Emacs 21 is a big step forward in our long-term plan to take Emacs from a programmable text editor to a programmable word processor.
1, the Emacs development sources are accessible via anonymous CVS from http://savannah.
Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor.
At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp, a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing.
