MicroEMACS is a small, portable Emacs-like text editor originally written by Dave Conroy in 1985, and further developed by Daniel M. Lawrence (1958–2010[2][3]) and was maintained by him. MicroEMACS has been ported to many operating systems, including CP/M,[4] MS-DOS, Microsoft Windows, VMS, Atari ST, AmigaOS, OS-9, NeXTSTEP, and various Unix-like operating systems.

Variants of MicroEMACS also exist, such as mg, a more GNU Emacs-compatible editor. Many relationships to contemporary editors can also be found in MicroEMACS. The vi clone vile was derived from an older version of MicroEMACS.

MicroEmacs 3.12 for WindowsCE
Everybody knows it needed a better text editor... It's just that simple.

Thanks everyone for the positive response!

It's in alpha, and only tested for MIPS palmtops. I'll try again soon with the SH3 executable as soon as I get an opportunity to toy with an SH3 box.


uemacsmips.zip This is the current alpha binary for Mips CE palmtops.
uemacs-wince.tgz This is the current development tree... It would probably be advisable to use the Makefile and uemacs.mak as a guide on how to build MicroEmacs. I prefer GNU Make, so the file Makefile is a gnu makefile, although if anyone has C++ Builder (borland), I've included the uemacs.mak created by it that I used for testing. As most of you probably know, WinCE uses a Win32 subset, so with a little fiddling, a CE application can be compiled native on the local platform. It simplifies debugging, IMHO.

In any case, this file contains the original zip files and documentation as well.

System Requirements

Windows CE 2.0 (perhaps 1.0 as well) for MIPS and SH3 processors. Alpha version.
