Is there a version of EMACS that runs on the mac?? How about other
editors that read/write "plain" text files? We're using several Mac+'s
as terminals/word processors/graphics stations(at home), but all our printing
runs through the vax. We have a lot of material (reeports, data, etc) on
the vax, formatted for troff. We also have two vt100 terminals in the
office, and only 1 mac (direct connection to the VAX). What we need is
a simple editor to allow us to download text files, work on them, and
upload them without having to reformat (other than the cr<->nl
conversion). This leaves MSWord out. I just got the demo version of
FastEddie2, I haven't tried it yet, but from the docs I would guess that
some of the computerphobes would have a rough time getting the hang of
it. Emacs would be the ideal, since they already know it. Failing
that, we need something really easy to learn.
PS: Is mockwrite what I'm looking for. I've seen a lot of references
to it on the net, but I've never seen it advertised, posted, or in the
GEnie software library.
PPS: Thanks for all those who tried to help with my earlier printer
travails, I did eventually get it running, now it seems to have died, I
should have bought an imagewriter.
