Welcome to Wonderworks.
Wonderworks is a place where wonderful people are worked until they
die of exhaustion.
The result of their toil is software. Here's
a list of software and software projects the thralls are involved
- VM is a mail reader that runs under XEmacs and GNU Emacs. It
was written as an alternative to the Emacs RMAIL mail reader. VM
is highly configurable and easy to use. It supports POP and
IMAP for mail retrieval, understands MIME, and reads both the
standard UNIX mailbox format and the BABYL format used by the
- XEmacs is a version of Emacs that is largely compatible with
GNU Emacs, but sports more GUI features.
Read more about XEmacs at
its web site.
- Filladapt enhances the behavior of Emacs' fill functions by
guessing the proper fill prefix in many contexts. Emacs has a
built-in adaptive fill mode but Filladapt is much better. The
latest version of Filladapt
- Crypt++ is a pair of minor modes that support automatic
encoding and decoding of files, when files are visited and saved
under Emacs. The usual encodings are various compression and
encryption methods. Kyle Jones wrote the
original version of crypt++ in 1988 (then named "crypt"), and it was
subsequently modified heavily by Lawrence Dodd and Rod Whitby.
The current maintainer
is Karl Berry. The
latest version of crypt++ is 2.92.
- Mapping replace commands are like the traditional search and
replace commands in Emacs, except they allow the replacement
string to be taken sequentially from a series of replacements.
- The blinking-cursor package implements a blinking cursor
under GNU Emacs. This package is not for XEmacs; XEmacs has its
own cursor blinking package.
- The C Comment Edit package lets you edit C comments in Emacs'
Text mode, which is more suited to editing free form text than C
mode. When you finish editing the comment, the comment editing
mode formats, indents and inserts the comment back into the C
code buffer. The
latest version of C Comment Edit
- Setnu is a mode that displays line numbers in Emacs buffers,
much as the "set nu" command does under VI, hence the name. Setnu
works under XEmacs and GNU Emacs. This package is best used on
files with a few thousand lines at most, unless you have very fast
hardware and are willing to waste it recalculating and redisplaying
line numbers. The latest version of
setnu is 1.06.
- Redo enhances XEmacs' undo system by
allowing the user to redo changes that have been undone without
extending the undo list. So you could undo four changes, redo
one of them, then decide that you wanted to undo that change
after all and undo two more after that, and do it all as if you
were rewinding and fast forwarding a tape. Using the usual undo
system, it would be more like editing a tape, recording the edit
session and then editing the recoding of the edit. The redo
package was written for XEmacs, but is reported to work under
GNU Emacs as well. The author intends to only maintain it for
XEmacs. The latest version of
redo is 1.02.
- Floating Toolbar lets a XEmacs programmer or user set up a
detached toolbar that appears under mouse pointer with mouse
button 3 is clicked. This package is not for GNU Emacs. The
latest version of floating-toolbar
