A major mode for reading e-texts like those found on Project Gutenberg.

Basically it extends ViewMode with some handy keys, bookmarking, and the ability to automatically extract the text file from a zipped text (like those from Project Gutenberg ).

Bookmarking the position in a zipped text file is handled correctly.

When visiting a file in the user set etxt-directory emacs will automatically switch to etxt-mode. Then when quitting the file it will ask if a bookmark is desired.

Installation

Put the Lisp:etxt.el file in your lisp path.

Add this to your ~/.emacs file:

  (require 'etxt)

Start Emacs, then set your ebook directory with:

  M-x customize RET etxt

To start etxt mode visit a file in your ebook directory or type:

  M-x etxt.
