Hi people,

I'm writing an article about eev, it's not ready yet, but it has just
crossed the threshold from "too embarassing" to "incomplete but not no
so embarassing anymore"...

It's at <>.

Its abstract may sound a bit megalomaniac,

  Interacting with programs with command-line interfaces always
  involve a bit of line editing, and each CLI program tends to
  implement independently its own minimalistic editing features. We
  show a way of centralizing these editing tasks by making these
  programs receive commands that are prepared, and sent from, Emacs.
  The resulting system is a kind of Emacs- and Emacs Lisp-based
  ``universal scripting language'' in which commands can be sent to
  both external programs and to Emacs itself either in blocks or
  step-by-step under very fine control from the user.

but the "universal scripting language" is just the F9/channels thing
with the "subroutines" implemented by `eevnow-at' - see my posting of
2005apr22, the one with the title "eevnow and eevnow-at (revised)".

Oh, the section about that in the article is the one called "Big
Modular E-scripts", that at present has just the title.

Have fun, cheers,
  Eduardo Ochs
