Fink is ideal for someone like me who has UNIX/Linux experience but is
not a software developer.  I would not use OSX if it were not based on
some type of UNIX, BSD in this case.

Anyway, using Fink I installed edb, the Emacs DataBase.   I seems to
be much more useful, at least for my needs, than BBDB.  There are some
minor problems.  E.g. the reference card is a postscript file that
whether it is printed or converted to pdf is missing the left margin
of the text.  Basically the first column of three is useless.

There is no manual or tutorial that I know of, but the info file seems
to be extensive.

Funny, I had the same problem with the Reference card of Emacs Calc,
but not with AucTeX.
