GOSMACS: /goz´maks/, n.

[contraction of ‘Gosling EMACS’] The first EMACS-in-C implementation, predating but now largely eclipsed by GNUMACS. Originally freeware; a commercial version was modestly popular as ‘UniPress EMACS’ during the 1980s. The author, James Gosling, went on to invent NeWS and the programming language Java; the latter earned him demigod status.
