README file for JED. JED is distributed in two forms: jedXXX.tar.gz: Contains the complete source to the editor. It does not contain the slang library source. The library is available from ftp://space.mit.edu/pub/davis/slang. Building JED requires the use of a C compiler which understands function prototypes. I have sucessfully built JED with `cc' on the ULTRIX, VMS, and IRIX operating systems. In addition, I have created it using `gcc' under SunOS and Linux. See src/mkfiles/README for building it under DOS, OS/2, and Windows systems. jedXXX.zip: Contains no source code but it does include pre-compiled executables for MSDOS and Windows systems. The executable is in the bin directory and will work only on 386+ PCs with a DPMI server, such as provided by Windows (See INSTALL.pc for information regarding the server). The executables were created using gcc for win32 and MSDOS (specifically, MINGW32 and DJGPP). For installation instructions on Unix: read INSTALL.unx VMS: read INSTALL.vms DOS, OS/2, Win9X, NT: read INSTALL.pc Then, read INSTALL for more installation tips. For changes and new features, read changes.txt. Addition information about JED is available from <http://www.jedsoft.org/jed/> The documentation for the slang library and interpreter is available from <http://www.s-lang.org> and <http://www.jedsoft.org/slang/>. Useful newsgroups include comp.editors and alt.lang.s-lang. A mailing list is also available. See <http://www.jedsoft.org/jed/mailinglists.html> for more information about it.
