1 Term Mode

The term package includes the major modes term, shell, and gud (for running gbd or another debugger). It is a replacement for the comint mode of Emacs 19, as well as shell, gdb, terminal, and telnet modes. The package works best with recent releases of Emacs 19, but will also work reasonably well with Emacs 18 as well as Lucid Emacs 19.

The file nshell.el is a wrapper to use unless term mode is built into Emacs. If works around some of the missing in older Emacs versions. To use it, edit the paths in nshell.el, appropriately, and then M-x load-file nshell.el RET. This will also load in replacement shell and gud modes.
