Freemacs is a programmable editor. The .EXE file is only 21K because
it only contains a language interpreter and text editor primitives. The
bulk of the programming is done in MINT, which is a string-oriented
language. Freemacs is yet another Emacs clone. Emacs was first written
at MIT by Richard M. Stallman.

There are a number of Emacs clones for the PC available. Freemacs
has two distinguishing characteristics:

o Freemacs is the only freely copyable programmable editor. Epsilon and Brief
are examples of commercial programmable editors. (MicroEmacs has a macro
language, but that doesn't make it programmable).
o Freemacs is the only IBM-PC editor that tries to be like GNU Emacs.

You may freely copy this software. I only ask that you send improvements
back to me for incorporation into the package for the rest of us. The
distribution is available from one or more of the following sources:

EMACS15E ARC The executables and MINT code.
EMACS100 ARC Zenith Z-100 version. Requires EMACS15E.
EMACSPEL ARC Spelling checker.
EMACSEGA ARC A collection of EGA utilities
EMAC15ES ARC The .ASM source.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
