I remember when I first started looking for the
same p9-4-linux stuff a number of years back
that the FreeBSD people had a more complete and
more up-to-date collection in their ports
section than any of the Linux dists (Debian was
the only one that came close).

I once bought a Linux magazine with a cover
proclaiming the issue was devoted to the
"Internationalization of Linux".  Inside were
about ten articles on emacs and how someday it
was going to display UTF-8 or some such. They
had never even heard of 9term/sam/wily/etc.

But I can't use emacs because I only have a
10-Gig Hard Drive . . .                  :-)

9term appears to have been withdrawn, because the
package is in need of a new maintainer:

Do not forget acme (under Inferno, or as wily, for unix), 9menu, rc and tcs.

The ones I have that freshmeat.org is unlikely to know about:

I'm worried about version skew.  The current Plan 9 version of sam uses
code from acme.  At least three people, including me, have done unix
ports.   Right now, I have no clue what version any particular archive
site will be handing out.  We really ought to converge on something.

Sorrry for the auto-followup, but gregoire@inrs-telecom.uquebec.ca
pointed out that sam is indeed still available in netlib.  I can only
say that the searches I had tried on bell-labs.com did not show sam.

Try http://www.freshmeat.net. Also, http://www.plan9.bell-labs.com/plan9dist.

I downloaded Sean's win32 port a few months ago. You can always send him email:
seanq@lucent.com.

I've been using win-based development tools for a couple of years, and
am now about to move onto my first  linux project.  This gives me the
opportunity to dust off sam , 9term, and 9wm.  Years ago, I had them
running on various unices, but I would like to get hold of existing
linux ports if possible.  URLs?  I haven't had much luck with google or
yahoo searches.  Thanks.

Incidentally, there appear no longer to be sam downloads on
bell-labs.com, other than as part of the plan9 distribution.  seanq's
win32 port is not to be seen.
