This is the READ ME file for psgml.el version 1.2.1. -*- text -*- This is a BETA releas of PSGML. PSGML is a major mode for editing SGML and XML documents. It works with GNU Emacs 19.34, 20.3 and later or with XEmacs 19.9 and later. PSGML contains a simple SGML parser and can work with any DTD. Functions provided includes menus and commands for inserting tags with only the contextually valid tags, identification of structural errors, editing of attribute values in a separate window with information about types and defaults, and structure based editing. To install PSGML you first need to uncompress and unpack the source archive. This is done with the `gunzip' and `tar' commands. gunzip psgml-1.2.1.tar.gz; tar xf psgml-1.2.1.tar This should create a subdirectory to the current directory with the source code. This directory contains a `configure' command (see the file INSTALL for more information about configure). You can use the `configure' command to configure the package or you can load the file `psgml-maint' and execute the `psgml-compile-files' command. Place the `*.el' and the `*.elc' files in a directory where Emacs can find it (i.e. one of the directories in the `load-path' variable, you can add a directory to this variable in your `.emacs'.) If you use the `configure' approach, compile psgml with `make' and the you can run `make install' to install it in the system library `site-lisp'. The files are installed in a subdirectory named `psgml'. The location of `site-lisp' is figured out by `configure', but you can change it in the `Makefile'. You need to make sure that this subdirectory is in Emacs `load-path'. Put the following line in your .emacs: (autoload 'sgml-mode "psgml" "Major mode to edit SGML files." t) (autoload 'xml-mode "psgml" "Major mode to edit XML files." t) You may also want to set up search paths for external entities, See the section Entity manager in the psgml.info manual. The `psgml.info' is the documentation for PSGML in the info format. You can read this with the Emacs command `C-u C-h i'. You can also install the file in your systems info directory and edit the `dir' file to include `psgml.info' in the menu. The info file `psgml.info' is created from the texinfo file `psgml.texi'. The texinfo file can also be used to create a hard copy of the documentation. To do this you need the TeX program and a copy of `texinfo.tex'.
