GNU Emacs Lisp Archive README The Emacs Lisp archives on contain various pieces and packages of Emacs Lisp code. Emacs Lisp is the language used to extend the GNU Emacs editor published by the Free Software Foundation. Although much Emacs Lisp code is included in the GNU Emacs distribution, many people have written packages to interface with other systems, to better support editing the programming language they use, to add new features, or to change Emacs' default behavior. Most of the contents of this archive have been written by individuals and distributed publicly over the Internet through the info-emacs or info-gnu-emacs mailing lists or the comp.emacs, gnu.emacs, or gnu.emacs.sources newsgroups. The archives are available via anonymous FTP from in /pub/elisp-lisp
