EDE is the Emacs Development Environment: an Emacs extension that simplifies building and debugging programs in Emacs. It attempts to emulate a typical IDE (Integrated Development Environment). EDE can manage or create your makefiles and other building environment duties, allowing you to concentrate on writing code rather than support files. It aims to make it much easier for new programmers to learn and adopt GNU ways of doing things.

This file describes EDE, the Emacs Development Environment.
