Yep, right questions.

The unix.c file distributed with MicroEmacs 3.10 is based on
a BSD system with almost enough adjustments to make it work
on SysV, but not quite.

You need to get dirent.h and friends (it should be archived
somewhere on osu-cis) by Doug Gwyn.

If you would like I can mail you a replacement for unix.c that
supports the UnixPc (mouse, function keys, soft labels etc.).

Note that MicroEmacs 3.11 Beta is out and the regular release
is supposed to be next month.  Support for the UnixPc, and at
least two unrelated replacements for unix.c to support SysV
have been sent to the author (Dan Lawrence).  I have no idea
whether he is likely to include any or even part of it in the

Whatever the 3.11 release for MicroEmacs is, once it is released
there will be a group of support files, and a binary, placed on
osu-cis for the UnixPc specifically.
