A Getting a Unix version of Emacs

The Oz Programming Interface (OPI) is based on the Emacs editor. You can either use GNU Emacs version 19.28 or better which is available from http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html

Oz also runs with XEmacs version 19.14 or higher, which is available from http://www.xemacs.org

For the inexperienced user we recommend using XEmacs, since it is distributed in binary form which simplifies installation. When the Oz programming environment starts, it tries to invoke Emacs via the command emacs. If your version of Emacs has to be invoked with a different command name, say emacs20, you can achieve this by setting the environment variable OZEMACS as in

setenv OZEMACS emacs20


export OZEMACS=emacs20

depending on your shell.
