Many of you (perhaps a few of you) have used dismal or know about it.
It is a spreadsheet in gnu emacs lisp that David Fox and I created.
At one time it was vaguely related to S-mode, not only because it
shared an author (me!), but also including the fact that we were
going to use S as the spreadsheet engine.
It's been continued to be worked on. It's quite usable and quite
incomplete at this point in time. If you know emacs fairly well and
you work with numbers, you might find it useful for massaging data,
