Full description '''Dismal''' (Dis' Mode Ain't Lotus) is a '''Dismal''' (Dis' Mode Ain't Lotus) is a major mode for [[GNU Emacs]] that implements a spreadsheet. It is designed to be keystroke driven rather than mouse/menu driven (although it can be menu driven), and it is extensible. Users can write their own commands and functions, for example, to allow a function cell to write to several nearby cells. A ruler can be put up that reflects the semantics of column names past the ones automatically provided as letters. Dismal has some useful functions that implement the keystroke level model of Card, Moran, and Newell.ke level model of Card, Moran, and Newell.
