Emacs denominates a class of powerful, extensible, self-documenting text editors. The original implementation is GNU Emacs, which is still updated today.
There are a number of implementations of Emacs, often lightweight versions, many of which are available in Gentoo. Some of these projects may be feature-complete, without recent releases.
