This directory contains the source files for the C component of GNU Emacs.Nothing in this directory is needed for using Emacs once it is builtand installed, if the dumped Emacs (on Unix systems) or the Emacsexecutable and map files (on VMS systems) are copied elsewhere.See the files ../README and then ../INSTALL for installation instructions.Under GNU and Unix systems, the file `Makefile.in' is used as atemplate by the script `../configure' to produce `Makefile.c'. Thesame script then uses `cpp' to produce the machine-dependent`Makefile' from `Makefile.c'; `Makefile' is the file which actuallycontrols the compilation of Emacs. Most of this should worktransparently to the user; you should only need to run `../configure',and then type `make'.See the file VMSBUILD in this directory for instructions on compiling,linking and building Emacs on VMS.The files `*.com' and `temacs.opt' are used on VMS only.The files `vlimit.h', `ioclt.h' and `param.h' are stubs toallow compilation on VMS with the minimum amount of #ifdefs.`uaf.h' contains VMS uaf structure definitions. This is only needed ifyou define READ_SYSUAF. This should only be done for single-usersystems where you are not overly concerned with security, since iteither requires that you install Emacs with SYSPRV or make SYSUAF.DATworld readable. Otherwise, Emacs can determine information about thecurrent user, but no one else.
