    It saves checkpoints at a user configurable time interval. I think the default is 15 min and the max is 30 min.
  2. [all variants] Re: Is there really no linux text editor with smart line wrapping?

    In Emacs, you can try this:

    "Indent the region between BEG and END with adaptive filling."
    (goto-char beg)
    (while

    [SOLVED] Re: vim, emacs, gedit , etc

    Actually, it runs whatever the default editor is. This is set by the EDITOR environment variable.



    BTW, I did not know that. Thanks for the neat trick.

    [all variants] Re: hyperlinks in emacs?

    Org mode supports hyperlinks. Emacs Muse does too, which is the successor to wiki mode. I've only used org-mode, but I haven't tried hyperlinks yet.

    Re: emacs .el file addon

    The autoload is completely useless with the require. require loads the lisp immediately, autoload defers the load until unityjs-mode is invoked (making start up faster). I would use the autoload...

    Re: Is emacs still relevant?

    I started with GNU Emacs, then switched to XEmacs for about a year, then switched back. The simple answer is GNU Emacs has more users, and thus most add ons will work with it a bit better (though...

    Re: Is emacs still relevant?

    I disagree. I see a big difference in philosophy behind Vim and Emacs, and they work very differently. Just because they have many of the same capabilities doesn't mean they're at all similar.

    [ubuntu] Re: emacs editor problems

    Disclaimer: I use GNU Emacs.

    Many emacs libraries are autoloaded. You just start using them and Emacs loads the lisp file if it hasn't been loaded already. filladapt replaces some built-in...

    [ubuntu] Re: Setting terminal title

    Put this in your ~/.bashrc (or use the echo line in a script).


    function set_terminal_title()
    {
    echo -ne "\033]0;$1\007"
    }


    Then you can set the title to whatever you want.

    You probably want the key= option to sort(). Even better would be to store the numbers as floats instead of strings, because it's almost always a mistake to store numbers as strings.

    When creating/opening the pipe, use the O_NONBLOCK flag. Then write() will return with an error instead of just sitting there.
