XEmacs

XEmacs (formerly known as Lucid Emacs) is a powerful, extensible text editor with full GUI support, initially based on an early version of GNU Emacs 19 from the Free Software Foundation and since kept up to ate with recent versions of that product. XEmacs stems from a collaboration of Lucid, Inc. with Sun Microsystems, Inc. and the University of Illinois with additional support having been provided by Amdahl Corporation, INS Engineering Corporation, and a huge amount of volunteer effort.

            my favorite editor
            Xemacs is the editor I use every day. I'm happy with it. One big plus is that excellent documentation is available, e.g., O'Reilly's Learning GNU Emacs. My main complaint is that Perl mode is buggy. It also has some strange behaviors, like demanding your e-mail address the first time you use it in html mode. There are some features that don't seem to work as documented.

            So would I - I am compiling the GTK version of XEmacs
            right now on FreeBSD (21.4.4) to see what it can do.
            However, KDE integration would be nice to have.

            I suppose it is just down to finding a person who knows
            both XEmacs internals and KDE internals to do it...
