http://pivarski.watson.org/ Another one I found using google
`mathematica-mode' for emacs
This is an elisp file which gives your emacs a new mode: `mathematica-mode'.
Each buffer in this mode opens a text interface to Mathematica ((c) Wolfram
Research, Inc.).
Type Mathematica code in the buffer, taking advantage of all the emacs
editing commands (the one for stepping across sexps is particularly useful),
and control-j for an evaluation. This is great for writing programs in
Mathematica, since it has all the emacs features (including syntax
coloring!) and doesn't have the anti-features of the Mathematica front-end
(such as moving your text around someplace you don't want it, as you're
typing).
The user interaction is in most respects like a notebook, you can
re-evaluate an expression as often as you wish. (You have to explicitly kill
the old output, if you don't want to see the differences.) Graphics are
displayed in separate windows (a Mathematica text-mode feature).
I wrote this before I knew that `math-mode' exists. It's okay, though, mine
is better.
