Pre-built macros tree for installation, includes macros and help information. You do not require the memacros bundle if this is downloaded. 1075937


For MS-DOS then no installation script is provided and a manual installation is performed. Select the installation directory, we shall assume c:$\backslash$jasspa.

Unpack the metree zip package to form the macro tree, this creates the directory jasspa.

  cd \
  unzip jasspa-metree-yyyymmdd.zip

The binary is placed in the c:\jasspa directory. It is important that the binary is placed in the JASSPA tree as this allows the executable to locate the macros and spelling directories without any further configuration. If the binary is placed in a separate location from the tree then the $MExxxPATH environment variables must be defined to enable the editor to locate the tree.

Two different binaries are provided which are built with DJGPP V1.0 and V2.0. If you have DJGPP V2.0 installed in your system then install the V2.0 binary, otherwise install the V1.0 binary (as this is a self contained executable and has no run-time library dependencies).

  cd \jasspa
  unzip jasspa-me-msdos-djgpp1-yyyymmdd.zip

The location of the executable should be added to the autoexec.bat file e.g.

  SET PATH=%PATH%;c:\backslashjasspa

The system may be re-booted and the editor should be available on the command line me.


Small foot print version of JASSPA MicroEmacs. Runs without macro files.

Optional - Small foot print MicroEmacs may be run with no configuration files. This component may be built from the standard source. Use these binaries to give you Emacs on a box via a floppy with no configuration files. Byte
