Remembrance Agent (Remem) is an Emacs plug-in that watches over your shoulder and suggests information relevant to what you're reading or writing. While search engines help with direct recall, Remem is a tool for associative memory. Suggested documents are displayed in a buffer at the bottom of your Emacs window, and are updated every few seconds based on the last hundred or so words surrounding the cursor.
Documents are pulled from your own text documents, and Remem's internal indexer can parse email archives, HTML, LaTex and plain-text documents. It runs under most Unix systems (and maybe even properly souped-up Mac or Windows) and both Emacs and XEmacs.
· ra-index and ra-retrieve now work under Windows, but there's still trouble with Emacs and remem.el communicating with the ra-retrieve process, at least in XP and NT. Thanks to you guys, this is getting close.
· Dates are not currently indexed, so a mouseover-query on a date doesn't produce any suggestions.
· No machine learning for different field weights
· Doesn't handle gzipped files
· Requires GNU make, at least on some platforms, to compile.
What's New in This Release:
· Removed the include of malloc.h in dateyacc.c, since OSX has trouble finding it and we don't seem to need it anyway.
· Added /sw/include to configure.in and /sw/lib to main/Makefile.am so OSX can find the PCRE libraries when they are installed using Fink.
· Ran the following command: "cd remem-2.12; automake --add-missing -c; autoreconf" to update the "missing" script to a later version.
