GNU Emacs is a self-documenting, customizable, extensible real-time
display editor.

Users new to Emacs will be able to use basic features fairly rapidly
by studying the tutorial and using the self-documentation features.
Emacs also has an extensive interactive manual browser.  It is easily
extensible since its editing commands are written in Lisp.

GNU Emacs's many special packages handle mail reading (RMail) and
sending (Mail), outline editing (Outline), compiling (Compile),
running subshells within Emacs windows (Shell), running a Lisp
read-eval-print loop (Lisp-Interaction-Mode), automated psychotherapy
(Doctor :-) and many more.

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2012-08-01
    Affects: users of editors/emacs
      GNU Emacs port is updated to 24.1. Emacs 23 is moved to editors/emacs23.
      If you prefer to stick with Emacs 23, please specify EMACS_PORT_NAME=emacs23
      in /etc/make.conf, and do:
      # portmaster -o editors/emacs23 editors/emacs
      # env DISABLE_CONFLICTS=1 portupgrade -fo editors/emacs23 editors/emacs
      # pkg set -o editors/emacs:editors/emacs23
  • 2011-05-11
    Affects: users of editors/emacs
      Due to a bug when upgrading from 23.2 or later versions, everything
      installed by other ports in "${PREFIX}/share/emacs" gets removed.
      Before upgrading:
      * Please backup custom configurations in "${PREFIX}/share/emacs".
      * After upgrading reinstall any ports that may have had files in the
        "${PREFIX}/share/emacs" directory.
  • 2008-06-03
    Affects: users of editors/emacs
    Author: Yasuhiro KIMURA <>
      The port (editors/emacs) is updated to 22.2 and some of Emacs Lisp
      directories had changed.  So you should reinstall all ports that depend
      on it.  Please do something like:
    	# portupgrade -fr emacs

As threatened on freebsd-ports: all startup scripts know about the two   options
`start' and `stop' now (unless I have forgotten any). This allows   us to call
the scripts from /etc/rc.shutdown with the correct option.
