Emacs for Windows NT/2000 and Windows 95/98/ME This directory contains support for compiling and running GNU Emacs on Windows NT, Windows 95, and their successors. This port supports all of the major functionality of the Unix version, including subprocesses, windowing features (fonts, colors, scroll bars, multiple frames, etc.), and networking support. Precompiled distributions are also available; ftp to ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/windows/emacs/latest/ for the latest precompiled distributions. * Building and installing See the INSTALL file in this directory for detailed instructions on building and installing Emacs on your system. * Further information There is a web page that serves as a FAQ at: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/ntemacs.html There is also a mailing list for discussing issues related to this port of Emacs. For information about the list, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word "info" in the *body* of the message. To subscribe to the list, send a message to the same address with the word "subscribe" in the body of the message; similarly, to unsubscribe from the list, send a message with the word "unsubscribe" in the message body. Another valuable source of information and help which should not be overlooked is the various Usenet news groups dedicated to Emacs. These are particuarly good for help with general issues which aren't specific to the Windows port of Emacs. The main news groups to use for seeking help are: gnu.emacs.help comp.emacs There are also fairly regular postings and announcements of new or updated Emacs packages on this group: gnu.emacs.sources You are also always welcome to send me mail directly. If you don't hear from me immediately, however, don't worry; it sometimes takes me a few days (or longer) to get to all of my mail regarding Emacs. * Reporting bugs If you encounter a bug in this port of Emacs, we would like to hear about it. First check the file etc/PROBLEMS and the FAQ on the web page above to see if the bug is already known and if there are any workarounds. If not, then check whether the bug has something to do with code in your .emacs file, e.g. by invoking Emacs with the "-q --no-site-file" options. If you decide that it is a bug in Emacs that might be specific to the Windows port, send a message to the email@example.com mailing list describing the bug, the version of Emacs that you are using, and the operating system that you are running on (Windows NT, 95 or 98 including service pack level if known). If the bug is related to subprocesses, also specify which shell you are using (e.g., include the values of `shell-file-name' and `shell-explicit-file-name' in your message). If you think the bug is not specific to the Windows port of Emacs, then it is better to mail the bug report to firstname.lastname@example.org so that it will be seen by the right people. If Emacs has been set up to send mail, you can use the command M-x report-emacs-bug to create and send the bug report, but in some cases there is a function to report bugs in a specific package; e.g. M-x gnus-bug for Gnus, M-x c-submit-bug-report for C/C++/Java mode, etc.
