( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi,
can't believe this thread slipped me for so long...
Well, after some 6 years in (X)emacs and with a configuration of some 4000 lines of elisp I must have configured my XEmacs (almost) exactly to my needs. What is it that makes this so powerfull for me?
  • dabbrev (defaults to M-/): dynamic abbreviations which lets you pick the really long but insightful variable names because you don't have to type them anymore.
  • M-x locate so you'll never do the locate in xterm and mark the filename with the mouse again (later pasting that filename into XEmacs anyway)
  • speedbar one of the finest tools for navigation in large projects I've ever come across
  • desktop for re-opening all the files on the next day
  • active-menu.el (see the website) for one more line of code
  • function-menu for another navigation mechanism which works only in the current buffer (a buffer is usually a representation of a file in the editor)
  • saveplace to find myself at exactly the cursor position as the last time I opened that file
  • cperl auto help shows a short syntactic information; good if it has been a while since your last perl programm
  • and thousands of other things that don't spring to my mind in this moment
Have fun!

Regards... Stefan
you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
