ILISP is a package that is designed to integrate various Lisp implementations (mostly Common Lisp systems and various Scheme dialects, including Guile) within Emacs (or XEmacs). ILISP runs an inferior Lisp process (in Emacs parlance) and provides a specialized set of commands, key bindings, and menus to ease the interaction with it. ILISP commands access the underlying Lisp process and provide ways to make the editing, compilation, and execution of Lisp programs much easier.
The Autotoolset package complements the GNU build system by providing automatic generation of legal notices, automatic generation of GNITS-standard directory trees, a rudimentary portability framework for C++ programs, support for writing portable software that uses both Fortran and C++, additional support for writing software documentation in Texinfo and LaTeX, and a manual introducing both Autotools and the GNU build system in a unified task-oriented manner.
epydoc.el is an Emacs LISP program to write Epydoc documentation comments. It supports forrow functions. epydoc-insert-file-comment inserts file comments and @file, @author, and @copyright automatically. epydoc-insert-function-comment inserts function comments and @param/@return automatically. epydoc.el is based on Tom Emerson's doxygen.el.
VB.NET mode for Emacs is a mode for editing programs written in Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET). This mode features: automatic indentation of VB.NET syntax; font locking; automatic keyword capitalization; integration with compile.el, flymake.el, and imenu.el; built-in snippets for ya-snippet.el; and some minor convenience functions.
XEmacs (formerly known as Lucid Emacs) is a powerful, extensible text editor with full GUI support, initially based on an early version of GNU Emacs 19 from the Free Software Foundation and since kept up to ate with recent versions of that product. XEmacs stems from a collaboration of Lucid, Inc. with Sun Microsystems, Inc. and the University of Illinois with additional support having been provided by Amdahl Corporation, INS Engineering Corporation, and a huge amount of volunteer effort.
