Here is the MathSource description: 0202-093: Emacs Interface for Mathematica David Jacobson Math-mode lets you run Mathematica under Gnu Emacs and provides a functionality somewhat similar to the notebook interface available on the Macintosh, Microsoft Windows, X and NeXT machines. The input is divided into cells. Typing ESC RET submits a cell to Mathematica similar to the way SHIFT RET submits the cell in the notebook front end. At this point, most similarity ends. There are commands to copy cells, delete cells, etc. This version of math.el is compatible with Gnu Emacs through Version 19.23+. math.el (74 Kb) MathSource is accessible by email (mathsource at wolfram.com), by anonymous ftp/gopher (mathsource.wolfram.com) and by World Wide Web (http://www.wolfram.com/MathSource.html). I hope this helps. --Ian ----------------------------------------------------------- Ian Collier Wolfram Research, Inc. ----------------------------------------------------------- tel:(217) 398-0700 fax:(217) 398-0747 ianc at wolfram.com Wolfram Research Home Page: http://www.wolfram.com/ -----------------------------------------------------------
