Email me when discounted: 
Emacs is back with a vengeance. I recently got a new MacBook and have developed the need for some native Emacs goodness.

I looked around (though not too hard) and didn't see any other Emacs binaries except for Aquamacs, but it is too divergent from normal Emacs behavior for me. You may like it if the idea of multiple files open in a single window scares you or you are one of those who've actually used the menus in Emacs. Or maybe you want Command-O to open a file instead of using C-x C-f. I sure don't. I want my emacs to work like emacs and not like a Mac. :-) No offense to the Aquamacs guys, their goals are just more...

Leopard (10.5.0) already includes emacs 22.1.1, for those interested.

The version of Emacs bundled with OS X only runs in shell (Terminal) windows, not as a GUI app.

ERIKH: It can read word documents, through an emacs antiword mode.

I have downloaded the dmg file twice now. The current file claims to have "no mountable file systems".

Could someone check and post a working version?

Bad dmg-file aside, Emacs ROCKS!

The one true editor! I've been using the Carbon builds for about 8 months now and they are great, and should make most Emacs users very happy.

Really folks, if you're interested in Emacs, get the darwinports version and build it yourself.

For those who haven't used emacs before, it's a programmers editor with only the very, very basic of features not available to completely rearchitect on the fly. It's very powerful, but won't read your word documents. Just saving those who might be thinking that wasted effort.

Emacs will do anything, including read Word documents.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to read the Word document in Emacs.

Same problem here. Look at hte crashreporter logs. The problem is a file /usr/lib/libncurses.5.dylib. The program apparently wants version 6. I have no clue how to obtain the correct file. This file in not in the package.

Yes, the new Emacs is looking for a newer (6) library than what's installed (5).

It works here. Maybe you need the dev tools installed?

Does anyone know: where do you get the version 6 referred to in the earliest post? I have the dev tools cd installed already.

Thanks.
