[edit]

GNU Emacs

https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/
The extensible, customizable, self-documenting text editor.

Emacs is an extensible and highly customizable text editor. It is based on an Emacs Lisp interpreter with extensions for text editing. Emacs has been extended in essentially all areas of computing, giving rise to a vast array of packages supporting, e.g., email, IRC and XMPP messaging, spreadsheets, remote server editing, and much more. Emacs includes extensive documentation on all aspects of the system, from basic editing to writing large Lisp programs. It has full Unicode support for nearly all human languages.

This is a GNU package.

Documentation

The Emacs manual is an excellent resource for learning about Emacs; you can read it from within Emacs by typing C-h r. See also the GNU Emacs Manuals Online page.

How to Report Bugs Effectively

if you encounter problems building or using Emacs, send a report to <bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org> with full details (if possible, use M-x report-emacs-bug).
