This package contains emacs-w3m, an Emacs interface to w3m 1. Introduction w3m is a pager with WWW capability, developed by Akinori ITO. Although it is a pager, it can be used as a text-mode WWW browser. Visit the official w3m page for details: http://w3m.sourceforge.net/ Emacs-w3m is a simple Emacs interface to w3m. Its official web page is available at: http://emacs-w3m.namazu.org/ You can find more detailed version of the following explanations in the form of HTML'ized info: http://emacs-w3m.namazu.org/info/ 2. Requirements Check whether your system meets the following requirements before installing emacs-w3m. Emacs-w3m requires the latest version of w3m (version 0.3.1 and later). Since this program is much sensitive to the version of w3m, you should confirm it if you already have w3m installed. And we recommend you visit the official w3m web page to check whether a newer version of w3m has been released: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/w3m/ If you want to use the shimbun library which is included in the emacs-w3m distribution, you have to install FLIM package. For more detail about the shimbun library, see "Shimbun Library" section in Info. a) Emacs 21.x No additional package is required. When you use Emacs of the CVS head, it needs to be the version on and after March, 2004. b) Emacs 20.x No additional package is required. When BITMAP-MULE package is installed, you can see monochrome bitmap images inline on an Emacs frame. It is available at: ftp://ftp.jpl.org/pub/elisp/bitmap/ c) XEmacs APEL package is required. It is available at: ftp://ftp.m17n.org/pub/mule/apel/apel-10.6.tar.gz Note: You must not use the APEL XEmacs package (which is contained in SUMO). If you have already installed the APEL XEmacs package, use the following directives to replace it with APEL which is linked above (you can also use the same directives in order to newly install APEL): % rm -fr /usr/local/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/apel % cd apel-10.6 % make install-package XEMACS=xemacs-21.4.x\ PACKAGEDIR=/usr/local/lib/xemacs/xemacs-packages If you are using XEmacs 21.x, you should install the "gifsicle" program. There is a known bug in all XEmacs 21.x series that it won't let it display optimized animated gifs correctly or may make it crash when some kind of an interlaced gif image is displayed. Emacs-w3m uses the "gifsicle" program to convert gif data in order to make it possible to be handled by XEmacs 21.x. It is available at: http://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/ d) Mule 2.3 (based on Emacs 19.34) APEL package, the "new custom" package, the regexp-opt.el(c) module are required. For more detail, see carefully the next section about Emacs 19.34. If you wish to use BITMAP-MULE package to show monochrome images inline on the web pages, we strongly recommend you apply the patch and rebuild Mule. The patch named firstname.lastname@example.org is included in the patches/ directory. If you don't accept our recommendation, Mule might be stuck. And you wouldn't get out of the difficulty except killing Mule. e) Emacs 19.34 (without Mule) APEL package, the "new custom" package, the regexp-opt.el(c) module are required. Emacs-w3m requires the "new custom" package. If you use Emacs 19.34 or Mule 2.3, you have to install it before installing emacs-w3m. For more detail, visit the following page: http://www.dina.kvl.dk/~abraham/custom/ Especially for Mule 2.3, see also the README.en file which is included in the APEL distribution. Emacs-w3m also requires the regexp-opt.el(c) module which might not be provided in the old Emacsen (e.g. Emacs 19.34 and Mule 2.3). If you are using such versions of Emacs, you have to install the regexp-opt.el(c) module before installing emacs-w3m as follows: % cp attic/regexp-opt.el /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp % cd /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp % emacs -q -no-site-file -batch -f batch-byte-compile regexp-opt.el (You will likely need to say `mule' instead of `emacs' for the path name and the executable name if you are using Mule.) 3. Installation 3.1. Installing emacs-w3m on UNIX-like systems At the first, run the `configure' script. % ./configure Important notice to the Gnus users: =================================== If the various versions of Gnusae are installed in your system (it is likely that there are the released version and the development version of Gnusae), make sure that priority is given to the directory where the gnus.elc file which you use is installed in the load-path. To do that, use the --with-addpath option as follows: % ./configure --with-addpath=/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/gnus If you've installed APEL, FLIM or something in non-standard directories other than the default `load-path', you must specify them using the --with-addpath option as follows (you may also include the Gnus directory in it separated with `:'): % ./configure --with-addpath=/opt/share/apel:/opt/share/flim Next, execute the following commands to install emacs-w3m to an appropriate directory. % make % make install If you are using Emacs 21 or XEmacs, you had better install icon image files. To do this: % make install-icons or % make install-icons30 The latter will install the slightly larger icons with characters. You can also install emacs-w3m as an XEmacs package using `make install-package' instead of `make install'. % make % make install-package In this case, you don't have to execute `make install-icons' nor `make install-icons30'. The info files will also be installed by `make install' or `make install-package'. 3.2. Installing on non-UNIX-like systems If you cannot execute the `configure' script on your system, or if no `make' command is available, execute the following command: % emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -l w3mhack.el NONE -f w3mhack-nonunix-install If APEL, FLIM (or any other library) aren't installed in the ordinary places, the installer will leave them out. In such a case, it is necessary to tell those places to the installer as shown below: % emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -l w3mhack.el //c/share/apel://c/share/flim -f w3mhack-nonunix-install 4. Configuration We recommend using the ~/.emacs-w3m file (which is the default value of `w3m-init-file') when you twiddle some variables of emacs-w3m. This file is similar to ~/.emacs, but is read when emacs-w3m starts. However, note that there are options which shouldn't be put there, for example, `w3m-command'. 4.1. Essential Configuration Put this line into your ~/.emacs file: (require 'w3m-load) You have nothing to do if you have emacs-w3m installed as an XEmacs package. 4.2. mime-w3m.el In order to handle text/html part with emacs-w3m under SEMI MUAs such as T-gnus and Wanderlust, you have to put the following line in your ~/.emacs file: (require 'mime-w3m) 4.3. Proxy Gateway There are some ways to do this, one is to set the "http_proxy" environment variable globally in the shell something like: setenv http_proxy http://proxy.hogege.com:8000/ Another way is to customize the `w3m-command-arguments' variable to add the options "-o" and "http_proxy=http://PROXY_SERVER_NAME:PORT/". This can also be done in your ~/.emacs-w3m file as shown below: (setq w3m-command-arguments (nconc w3m-command-arguments '("-o" "http_proxy=http://proxy.hogege.com:8000/"))) To specify `no-proxy' hosts, which shouldn't be connected to with proxy gateways, you can set the "no_proxy" environment variable with the comma separated host names, or set the `w3m-no-proxy-domains' variable with a list of domain names (not host names) as follows: (setq w3m-no-proxy-domains '("local.com" "neighbor.com")) See also the documentation for the `w3m-command-arguments-alist' variable to use regexps to specify the `no-proxy' hosts. 5. Contact the emacs-w3m community To contact the emacs-w3m community for reporting bugs, contributing improvements, making a suggestion or asking us for help, send a mail to the open list <email@example.com>. You can also send a bug report using the `report-emacs-w3m-bug' command or the `C-c C-b' key if you have set the `mail-user-agent' variable that will work properly. 6. Acknowledgments w3m, which is an essential part of this package, was written by Akinori ITO. We'd like to address our thanks to him for his nice work. 7.
