BTW, why am I only allowed two windows, when both Multics and ITS Emacs
(the latter with the WINDOW package loaded) allow an arbitrary number?
I realize that I could use the mouse to create them, but it is
convenient being able to switch between them with ^X commands.
Try M-X (or C-M-X, I don't remember) Split Screen. It is a menu driven
screen partitioner. Actually, I don't like the way it behave too much
since, when told to make more than two windows, it divides the screen
horizontally. I suppose it would not be hard to change this, but I've
never had enough interest to bother looking at the code.
