MicroEmacs definition


(uemacs) A simple, portable text editor with versions for most microcomputers and many other computers. It is both relatively easy for the novice to use, but also very powerful in the hands of an expert. MicroEmacs can be extensibly customised.
Most versions use only a screen and keyboard - mouse and windowing facilities are not standard.
MicroEmacs was written by Dave G Conroy, Steve Wilhite, George Jones, and for nearly ten years: Daniel Lawrence.
Version: 3.11.
