Abstract

Extensions to the GNU incarnation of the Emacs editing system which provide facilities for menu-based interaction is given. Following the Emacs philosophy the described system is designed to allow for user-customisation and extension of menus, which are sensitive to the user's editing mode. The system affords pop-up and pull-right menus on SUN workstations and terminal menus on the wide range of terminals supported by Emacs. Additionally, a menu-based menu design tool has been implemented. This provides intelligent support to individual users who wish to construct or alter menus. The operation of this Emacs menu system is outlined and its range of facilities described in detail.
