Tramp is a remote file editing package for Emacs. It uses different methods like ssh or scp to access files on remote hosts as if they were local files. Access to the remote file system for editing files, version control, directory editing and running processes on the remote host are transparently enabled.
Its name stands for Transparent Remote (file) Access, Multiple Protocol. It provides remote file editing, similar to Ange-FTP and EFS. The difference is that Ange-FTP uses FTP to transfer files between the local and the remote host, whereas Tramp uses a combination of 'rsh' and 'rcp' or other work-alike programs, such as 'ssh'/'scp'. In GNU Emacs, this version of Tramp uses a unified filename syntax for Tramp and Ange-FTP.
The tramp package is distributed with GNU Emacs, as well as with XEmacs.
