Greed is an Emacs Lisp client for GROGGS. It was originally written by Gareth Rees, and has undergone meddling by various hands since then.


You will need Emacs installed. GNU Emacs and XEmacs should both work. If you have a choice between a MULE and a non-MULE version, you should use the MULE version.

Very old versions of Emacs may not work.

Aquamacs is not currently supported.


greed-1.4.4.tar.gz contains the source code. You can either install it system-wide or just in your home directory. See the README for instructions.

groggs-greed_1.4.4_all.deb should be suitable for Debian and Ubuntu systems.

(The odd package name is because someone else grabbed “greed” for their package name despite being informed that it was in use already.)

I maintain a bzr branch for Greed. At the time of writing it includes code from all other versions of Greed known to me. I'll try to keep it up to date with any other changes.

$ bzr clone
$ autoconf
$ ./configure
$ make

You can see the bzr change history directly.

There is a separate branch for releases,
