Emacs 17 comes with its own doctor
Gnu Emacs version 17 is now available. See the article HOW TO GET GNU EMACS and our Order Form elsewhere in this bulletin.
Gnu Emacs 17 works on system V. Even subshells work.
The online Emacs manual is available through the info command.
Outline mode now allows the user to selectively hide or display the subtree of an item.
TeX and Nroff editing modes have been added.
C editing mode has been made smarter. It now understands how to indent else clauses.
Consistency between modes has been improved by assigning some commands to different keys.
Toys. To the disassociated press has been added:
- hanoi, the (slightly) animated puzzle solver,
- yow, a Zippy saying producer, and
- doctor, the infamous psychiatrist.
The folks on net.emacs have sent a suggestion for yowza which lets you watch the doctor respond to yow.
