Mg gives you the similar operational feelings as the famous editor GNU Emacs does. Mg is a derived version of MicroEMACS, and a lot of enhancement has been introduced by Bob Larson (blarson@ecla.usc.edu, this address can be found in the README file of Mg but now unreachable unfortunately) and several other developers. You can find a detailed description of Mg in "README" file which is involved in this delivery.

Mg for Win32 is a port of this Mg onto Windows based operating systems such as Windows CE and Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP. After Bob released Mg version 2a, Japanese developers including Shigeki Yoshida did a lot of works on Mg, such as port to MS-DOS, preparing c-mode, and so on. Mg for Win32 is based on this enhanced version of Mg. So, Mg for Win32 provides a lot of enhanced features compared to Mg 2a.

The following is the summary outlining the Mg for Win32:

Provides the similar operations as the GNU Emacs does.

In addition to key bindings, you can find a lot of similar behaviors in buffers, buffer windows, etc. You must feel that Mg is really a "Micro" Emacs.

Consider how wonderful a single program file with just 200KB can provide such similar feelings as Emacs!
'dired', directory editor is supported

Mg provides selected features of directory editor (dired) which GNU Emacs provides. Tillanosoft added a new feature 'dired-do-shell-command' to dired and it provides a feature to execute arbitrary file listed by dired.
auto-fill-mode, a convenient mode for creating e-mail messages

You can wrap your messages around in auto-fill-mode.

Mg (and of course Emacs) provides a feature to specify the both edge of text. It also provides the feature to re-fill the paragraph even after inserting some messages in the paragraph (the function is named fill-paragraph).
