The newer versions of GNU Emacs include `python-mode' in the core Emacs distribution, so you might want to try the editors/emacs-devel port :) The distfiles of this port are generated from CVS snapshots of Emacs 22.X, which is going to be the next release of GNU Emacs. This version of Emacs still has a few rough edges (i.e. the GTK+ UI crashes on FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT), but it has worked remarkably well for several months here. If you give it a try, please let me know, as all the testing we can get is nice. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
