An Emacs for Tiger

Over at the other blog (plug, plug), I posted a link to a build of GNU Emacs for Tiger that my friend John made.


  • Of course, you can also fire up terminal and - due to the fact that tiger comes bundled with emacs - start using emacs from there.

  • Yes, but this one is lickable.

  • There was a 404 error earlier (woops!) on the download link which I've since fixed.

  • Plus your mouse can be used to set marks, cut, paste, etc.

    I hate going back to using Emacs from Terminal.

  • Dan, the link to your other blog isn't well formed HTML, its a href= not a href-

  • Dan is still getting used to this whole web thing. There were no hyperlinks in .plan files!

  • Unfortunately that did not work for me (10.3). I click on the Emacs icon, and it simply does not launch.

    Anyway --- there is the excellent Aquamacs:

    Download and be happy!

  • Sorry to see that it didn't work for you, but this hasn't been tested on 10.3, only 10.4. If anyone else notices that it doesn't launch (and/or if you have a crash log) on 10.3, I'll investigate, but 10.3 binary builds of Carbon GNU Emacs abound, so it's not a priority.

    I also fixed the href problem a previous poster mentioned. Steve's right, this "Weeb" thing is strange and new. So many fiddly bits...

  • Too bad posting on that other blog doesn't work at all (and the email link doesn't work either...) So how is this different from the japanese carbonemacs (from though there's a wiki too...)? The japanese aspect is simply that a lot of japanese-language support is enabled, it works fine for plain-english users.

    Also, /usr/bin/emacs is kind of garbled under Terminal or xterm, even in 10.4.1 (and yes, it's in Radar already.)

    And while I can see the value in supporting 10.3 (the above link has a 10.3 version too), I don't see *any* value in supporting 10.4.0 -- if you haven't hit software update yet, what are you waiting for? The .0 release had a *lot* of problems, 10.4.1 came out pretty quickly for a reason :-)
