README -*- text -*- GNU Emacs REDUCE Integrated Development Environment: Major modes for editing and running REDUCE source code Author: Francis J. Wright <http://sourceforge.net/users/fjwright> Version: $Id$ REDUCE IDE is a package that provides an Integrated Development Environment for the REDUCE computer algebra system within the GNU Emacs editor. Its two major components are Emacs Lisp libraries that provide major modes for respectively editing REDUCE source code and running a *command-line version* of REDUCE in an Emacs window. However, many of the facilities require that Emacs is running under a GUI such as Microsoft Windows or the X Window System under some flavour of UNIX or Linux. REDUCE IDE requires GNU Emacs 23 or later. I don't explicitly support XEmacs. All files should in principle be OS-independent. However, the environment I use currently consists of Microsoft Windows 7, the native Windows port of GNU Emacs 24, and Cygwin for other GNU software. I probably can't help with problems that are specific to a different setup, especially a different OS. * Distributed files Required: reduce-mode.el - REDUCE source editing mode Optional: reduce-run.el - runs REDUCE in an Emacs buffer reduce-ide.texinfo - texinfo documentation source * Installation In GNU Emacs 24+, download reduce-mode.el and optionally reduce-run.el to any convenient directory and run the Emacs command `package-install-file' on reduce-mode.el and then optionally on reduce-run.el. *Note that reduce-mode.el must be installed first.* (I may provide a multi-file package including documentation later.) For further deails, see "Packages" in the Emacs manual. For brief manual installation instructions see the comments after "Usage" in the .el files. * Documentation A 30-page user's guide, generated from reduce-ide.texinfo, is available in PDF or HTML via http://reduce-algebra.sourceforge.net/reduce-ide/. You can also generate documentation yourself in various formats, including info, html and pdf, from reduce-ide.texinfo, but you need the GNU Texinfo package; see http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/. If you have TeX installed then it might include Texinfo (possibly as an optional package); e.g. MiKTeX for Windows provides the main components. To generate info or html it is probably best to run makeinfo; to generate pdf you need to run TeX, possibly indirectly, so you also need a TeX installation. For further details, please read sections 20 to 22 of the Texinfo manual, available online at http://www.gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/texinfo/. For a quick summary, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texinfo.
