The version on MathSource, Wolfram Research's electronic library
of Mathematica materials, is dated 1994 should work with versions
of Gnu Emacs through 19.23+.
Here is the MathSource description:
0202-093: Emacs Interface for Mathematica
David Jacobson
Math-mode lets you run Mathematica under Gnu Emacs and provides
a functionality somewhat similar to the notebook interface
available on the Macintosh, Microsoft Windows, X and NeXT
machines. The input is divided into cells. Typing ESC RET
submits a cell to Mathematica similar to the way SHIFT RET
submits the cell in the notebook front end. At this point, most
similarity ends. There are commands to copy cells, delete
cells, etc. This version of math.el is compatible with Gnu
Emacs through Version 19.23+.
math.el (74 Kb)
MathSource is accessible by email (mathsource@wolfram.com),
by anonymous ftp/gopher (mathsource.wolfram.com) and by
World Wide Web (http://www.wolfram.com/MathSource.html).
I hope this helps.
