More Neat Stuff for your Emacs -*-Outline-*- This file describes GNU Emacs programs and resources that are maintained by other people. Some of these may become part of the Emacs distribution in the future. * The LCD archive There is a large collection of Emacs Lisp code available for FTP at archive.cis.ohio-state.edu; it is actively maintained by Dave Brennan <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Dave Sill <email@example.com>. To get started using this archive, do: ftp archive.cis.ohio-state.edu Once you're in FTP, do cd pub/gnu/emacs/elisp-archive bin get lispdir.el.Z get LCD-datafile.Z and exit. Then do: compress -d *.Z The lispdir.el package will help you search for useful packages in the LCD-datafile, which is a list of the archive constants. It will even fetch them for you on command. * Eric Ludlam's etalk system Eric Ludlam has written a C program and Emacs Lisp code to do Internet talk through an Emacs window. The package also includes Emacs Lisp code which assists you in using talk to play a number of different interactive games. This system seems to be quite nicely put together and is well documented with a texinfo file that you can integrate into Emacs's own on-line help. It's too large and specialized to include in the Emacs distribution, though. Sources of this system are available for FTP at nic.umass.edu 188.8.131.52 Look under pub/contrib. As of March 23 1993, there are two relevant files: pub/contrib/etalk0.6B.tar.Z --- sources of the talk system pub/contrib/egames0.6B.tar.Z --- more game-support files We don't know whether this can use the additional features in GNU talk.
