Subject: Re: Q: Introductory material? From: Erik Naggum <email@example.com> Date: 1997/09/25 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Holger Schauer | If Emacs is your Lisp-Editor-of-Choice you should also have a look at | http://www-digital.cern.ch/carney/emacs/emacs.html where you can | find hyperspec.el which provides an easy access to the HyperSpec (both | the "normal" online version at Harlequin and to an off-line version | saved some where on your disk). | (Hmm, can't remember if it works with XEmacs only... check it yourself.) the version by Richard Carney looks very suspiciously like a reworked version of the hyperspec.el I wrote a while ago, sans copyright notice or credits, but with many full sentences and Lisp forms identical to mine. hmmmm, indeed. anyway, my old version (first published 1997-03-17) works in 19.34, but required the Franz, Inc, `fi' package to work. the new version works in a standard Emacs, has completion on Lisp symbols, a history of lookups, it works better with your favorite browser, but is probably dependent on Emacs 20 features -- I haven't tested with 19.34. I also haven't had time to write up a web page for it, but retrieve the following files (they are marked as application/octet-stream by my HTTPD server, so they should be saved to file immediately): http://www.naggum.no/emacs/hyperspec.el http://www.naggum.no/emacs/hyperspec.elc thanks for the interest. #\Erik -- if you think this year is "97", _you_ are not "year 2000 compliant". see http://www.naggum.no/emacs/ for Emacs-20-related material.
