Extensible, real-time editor.
Extraordinarily powerful text editor with additional features including content sensitive major modes, complete online documentation, highly extensible through Lisp, support for many languages and their scripts through its multilingual extension, and a large number of other extensions available either separately or with the GNU Emacs distribution.
Runs on many different operating systems regardless of machine. It offers true Lisp, smoothly integrated into the editor, for writing extensions and provides an interface to the X windows system.
