Description

Notebooks provide a sophisticated interface for Mathematica on Macintosh and NeXT computers but nothing similar exists for other systems. The standard Mathematica interface on Unix systems, for example, allows only limited editing of previous input and no editing of previous output; also, anything that has scrolled off the top of the screen is lost. To compensate for that lack, I have written a Mathematica-mode package for the popular Gnu Emacs editor that has much of the functionality of Notebooks.
