tramp version 18.104.22.168.2 User Manual
This file documents tramp version 22.214.171.124.2, a remote file editing package for Emacs.
tramp stands for “Transparent Remote (file) Access, Multiple Protocol”. This package provides remote file editing, similar to Ange-FTP.
The difference is that Ange-FTP uses FTP to transfer files between the local and the remote host, whereas tramp uses a combination of rsh and rcp or other work-alike programs, such as ssh/scp.
