Zile project is a small Emacs clone. Zile is a customizable, self-documenting real-time open-source display editor. Zile was written to be as similar as possible to Emacs; every Emacs user should feel at home.

Here are some key features of "Zile is Lossy Emacs":
It is very useful for small footprint installations (like on floppy disk) or quick editing sessions. A typical binary is about 100Kb.
8-bit clean
Zile can operate with binary files.
Looks like Emacs
Most Zile key sequences and function names are identical to Emacs ones.
Multi buffer editing with multi level undo
The number of files and undo operations that Zile can handle is limited only by memory.
Multi window
Zile can display multiple windows on the screen.
Killing, yanking and registers
The standard killing, yanking and register features of Emacs are available under Zile.
Minibuffer completion
Zile can complete commands and filenames in the minibuffer.
Auto fill (word wrap)
Zile automatically breaks the lines when they become too wide (if the Auto Fill Mode is enabled).

What's New in This Release:
Fix a couple of bugs introduced in 2.2.23, namely that setting skip-splash-screen and auto-fill-mode in .zile no longer worked.
