grault

grault /grawlt/ n. Metasyntactic variable invented by Mike Gallaher and propagated by the Gosling Emacs documentation. Eric Raymond has deleted all mentions of it from the Jargon File; if anyone has a copy of the Gosling/Unipress Emacs documentation with the original use of this word, please, please get in touch by sending mail to me. I'd love to see it.


grault.net is a wiki farm. Not in the strict sense perhaps, but in the sense that here can be found some wikis, grazing happily and chewing the cud.
