   I hit upon discussions about tramp not working
and xemacs still using efs for remote file editing.

   Can someone please clarify if tramp is ready for usage ?

   Tramp isnt working for me and I want to abandon my debugging
efforts if it isnt ready yet.


Version 21.4 (patch 14)

`file-name-handler-alist' is a simple built-in variable.

Value: (("\\`/\\[.*\\]" . tramp-file-name-handler) ("^/[^/:]+:" . 

*Alist of elements (REGEXP . HANDLER) for file names handled specially.
If a file name matches REGEXP, then all I/O on that file is done by calling

The first argument given to HANDLER is the name of the I/O primitive
to be handled; the remaining arguments are the arguments that were
passed to that primitive.  For example, if you do
    (file-exists-p FILENAME)
and FILENAME is handled by HANDLER, then HANDLER is called like this:
    (funcall HANDLER 'file-exists-p FILENAME)
The function `find-file-name-handler' checks this list for a handler
for its argument.
