GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists. The software aims to provide a unified and user friendly framework for editing structured documents with different types of content: text, mathematics, graphics, interactive content. TeXmacs can also be used as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra, numerical analysis, and statistics. New presentation styles can be written by the user and new features can be added to the editor using Scheme.
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.
DictEm is an extremely customizable DICT client for (X)Emacs. It implements all functions of the client part of the DICT protocol (RFC-2229). Unlike dictionary.el, it widely uses autocompletion that is used for selecting a dictionary and search strategy. It provides several hooks that may be used for buffer postprocessing. Built-in hyperlinking and a highlighting mechanism are based on this ability. It supports the mechanism of virtual dictionaries that can be used for grouping dictionaries from different DICT servers into the client-side virtual dictionary.
