Re: [h-e-w] gnuclient vs. emacsclient

I use the Emacs distribution available from EmacsW32. I switched from gnuclient to emacsclient whenever this distribution did. From a functionality perspective they are very similar, but since I also use Carbon-emacs on my Mac, and Gnu Emacs on my Linux machines, I prefer it because it is standard across the board. Plus, emacsclient development is still active because it is a part of Emacs. To my knowledge, Gnuclient development is dead, but I could be wrong about that.

I'm using a very old version of gnuclient and I'm surprised that it still works, but it does. However, I expect other people have had the opposite experience and it may depend on exactly how you use it. I mainly use it in the Windows Explorer context menu so that I can open all files in the same instance of Emacs.

That was it that you could not get to work with emacsclient?
