    How does the following compare with your version of uEmacs? Is it
    missing anything? Currently I have it compiled on x86_64 and stripped
    it is 133008 bytes as a 64-bit executable.

    The quoting messed up the formatting a little, so I went through and
    fixed that first... A quick glance looks like it's pretty much what I
    have.... I'll leave this all here.... and I'll import my emacs.hlp to
    the next message.... (but the reformatting is as much to let me read
    this easier while comparing to mine)...

    FILE NAME COMPLETION

    File name completion can be used with all file commands (find-file, view-file, ...) but it works only under UNIX and MS-DOS. It is invoked
    by a <Space> or <Tab>. If there exist more than one possible
    completions they are displayed one by one. If the file name contains
    wild card characters, the name is expanded instead of simple
    completion. Special characters can be entered verbatim by prefixing
    them with ^V (or ^Q). -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    I note that the order of the pages is a little different, and there may
    be some new stuff in yours.... at the very least, there are commands
    that I'm not presently using... :) But most of it looks quite
    familiar.... and the commands I do use are all there... :)

    I had a couple of other tastes last week at my family's camping... An ok tequila and a somewhat ok caramel B.V.... I'd not brought along my
    Macallan to share, not knowing who'd be there... so was dependent on
    whatever other people (mainly my youngest sister) had available...

    I'm sure I'll still have plenty of the Macallan when our toasts come
    round.... :)

    Hallo Nancy!

    I had a couple of other tastes last week at my family's camping

    I had a couple shots of Polish potatoe vodka a week ago. Nowhere near as good as Glenlivet which as we speak is nowhere to be found within reach. For that I'll probably wait 157 days.

    Strange how other tastes just pale in contrast with a good single
    malt... ;) I do have my Macallan 12 with more than half the bottle
    yet... it should last until the time appointed... ;)
