Library of Emacs LISP functions

  • " Elib has been decommissioned as a separate package since its useful functions have long since been included in Emacs. "

Elib is designed as a collection of useful routines that don't have to be reinvented each time a new program is written. It contains code for container data structures, minibuffer and string handling functions missing in standard Emacs, and routines for handling lists of cookies in a buffer. This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.
