* An Emacs editor biased towards UNIX users, working across platforms by providing a consistent interface under UNIX, Microsoft Windows '95/'98/NT and DOS operating systems. * Fully featured editor, retaining the lightness of the original MicroEmacs 3.8 with much enhanced capability. * Small memory and disk footprint. * A much enhanced version of the Danial Lawrence's original MicroEmacs 3.8 of 1988. It is stressed that although Danial Lawrence's 3.8 version was used as a base, he has had no involvement in the development of this distribution. * To avoid any confusion with the original MicroEmacs, this distribution should be referred to as the JASSPA distribution.
