1988-01-19 Chris Hanson (cph@sugar-smacks)
* xscheme.el: Extensive changes including better documentation, a
new major mode `scheme-debugger-mode', and a new format for the
modeline when using the Scheme interface.
The major mode `scheme-debugger-mode' is used when Scheme is
running one of the character-driven debugger interfaces. It is
like Scheme mode except that evaluation is disabled, and
characters that are normally self-inserting instead are
transmitted to the Scheme process.
The modeline is changed so that information about the state of the
Scheme process is shown only in buffers whose major mode is
`scheme-mode' or one of the related Scheme major modes.
Information about the state of the read-eval-print loop is shown
only in the Scheme process buffer.
All of these changes are upwards compatible with versions of
Scheme which ran using the previous interface. However, some of
the features will not be enabled in older Scheme systems. Newer
versions of Scheme (specifically, those newer than release 6.1.1)
require the new interface for correct operation. They will not
work correctly with older version of this interface.

1987-12-26 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)
* c-mode.el (electric-c-terminator, c-indent-line):
Don't recognize `case' unless space or tab follows.
1987-12-23 Richard Mlynarik (mly@peduncle)
* loaddefs.el:
Update terminal-emulator documentation. (This wasn't done
after the last edit.)
* terminal.el:
Split out te-stty-string from function terminal-emulator.
Run "sh" if no env var SHELL.
Add nonstandard (though useful) NF and LP termcap flags.
Fix terminal-emulator documentation. Some comments.
1987-12-22 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)

unreadable directory.
1987-12-21 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)

1987-12-06 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)
* compile.el (compilation-error-regexp): Last alternative
could match spuriously; change `.*' to ` *'. Change may be wrong;
nobody knows which program makes error messages this should match.
* terminal.el: Many fixes: some new termcap entries and fix bugs
in others.
Terminal width and height may be specified.
Scrolling is now the default. Enabling or disabling scrolling
during use does not really work because it is necessary to change
the termcap entry.
Do `stty new dec' at startup. Without this, you get printing
terminal echoing which looks very strange with DEL as the erase
char. This may lose on sysV, but the need can't be ignored.
One known bug remains a mystery: when running `ex', the empty-line
command fails to overprint the colon with the text that is
printed. The output Emacs receives contains a crlf in place of a cr.
* startup.el (command-line-1): Don't insert the startup-message
in a buffer other than *scratch*. Fixes bug with (rmail) in .emacs.

term-setup-hook now for users only.
1987-12-04 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)

for substring.
* lisp-mode.el (emacs-lisp-mode-syntax-table): New variable.

initialize lisp-mode-syntax-table unless already done,
and install it.
* lisp-mode.el (*-mode): Pass an arg to lisp-mode-variables.

name. Remove a call to parse-partial-sexp that always did nothing.

* replace.el (occur-mode): Doc fix.
1987-11-11 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)
* dired.el (dired-find-file{,-other-window}): No need to
check for a line saying it is a directory, because find-file
does that in a better way.
* dired.el (dired-view-file): Use file-directory-p to
decide whether to call dired.
* rmail.el (rmail): If buffer already existed and find-file
reverts it, recompute the message tables.
1987-11-03 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)
* files.el (hack-local-variables): If selective-display
is set, next local-variables line starts with either \n or ^M.

message for all files.
1987-10-02 Richard Stallman (rms@frosted-flakes)

across the sit-for.
1987-09-16 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* Version 18.49 released.
* debug.el (debugger-mode): mode-class special.
* buff-menu.el: Typo putting mode-class on `Buffer-menu-mode'.
* c-mode.el (electric-c-brace): Set insertpos after
calling newline, since newline might do an auto-fill.
1987-09-12 Richard Mlynarik (mly@prep)
* loaddefs.el, mail-utils.el (rmail-dont-reply-to):
Add new variable `rmail-default-dont-reply-to-names' which is used
(together with the user's name) as the default value of
rmail-dont-reply-to-names. This variable replaces the wired-in
constant "info-" in `rmail-dont-reply-to' and is intended to be

caar, cadr and cdar. Delete cddr.
Definitions for the common-lisp functions
were different from those in cl.el and could interfere.
1987-08-19 Richard Mlynarik (mly@prep)
* lisp-mode.el (lisp-indent-hook): Fix braino.
1987-08-14 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)

Do not handle first two distinguished forms specially. All
distinguished forms are indented at double scheme-body-indent.

* rmail.el (rmail-get-new-mail):
Handle errors competently. (Don't attempt to
handle them, rather than botching the job)
* rmail.el (rmail-insert-inbox-text):
Put ".newmail" file in same directory as rmail-file-name
rather than in $HOME. This allows one to read things in
even when out of space on one filesystem.

for system-independence.
Collect and report errors from `movemail' (rather than
saying "(There is no new mail)"!)

termscript files easier to understand.
1986-12-23 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)

Make `set-window-buffer' synonym for obfuscatory `show-buffer'

a string of length one.

Add support for delta-from-UT timezone specs ("EST" = "-0500").
Add support for four-character timezone specifications such as NZST.
[This is actually a bit suspect, since four-character timezone

* rmail.el (rmail-expunge): Preserve point unless expunging
the current message.
* bytecomp.el (file-newer-than-file-p):
Since this is a primitive in version 18, define it

1986-06-08 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* files.el (load-file, load-library): Two new commands.
* startup.el (command-line): Eliminate inhibit-command-line
since one can just set command-line-args to nil.

since main() handles it now.
* tags.el: Display name of file being processed.
* mh-e.el: Install version 3.3 from Larus.
* replace.el, loaddefs.el (perform-replace):
perform-replace does not print "done"; its callers do.

Rename file default-profile to .emacs-df;
load it always, unless inhibit-default-init is set to t.
* telnet.el: Switch to C-c prefix for mode-specific commands.
* startup.el (command-line): Use just first word of
terminal name to make per-terminal library file name.

function to remove backup or version suffixes from filename.
1986-06-07 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* c-mode.el (electric-c-terminator):
Check for point being inside a multi-line string or comment
and do nothing. For colon, check for more than one word
before it on the line (with first one not "case") and do nothing.
* c-mode.el: Don't rebind Linefeed.
* c-mode.el (calculate-c-indent):
If previous line ends in ") {", skip back to matching "("
and use that line's indentation as the brace's column.
1986-06-06 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* nroff-mode.el (nroff-comment-indent, nroff-mode):
Define a comment syntax. Install comment-indenter
as supplied by gildea, but change it not to use
insert-before-markers, to avoid display anomalies.
* files.el (find-file-noselect): Tell revert-buffer not to query.
* files.el (revert-buffer): Second arg non-nil means no query.
* files.el (after-find-file): Warn if auto-save file
exists and is newer than the file visited.
* files.el (find-alternate-file):
Allow replacing a non-file buffer, as long as not modified.
* files.el (recover-file):
Initially show a directory listing of real and auto-save files.
Only find the file if user says yes.
Print better messages.
* simple.el (goto-line): Use new interactive code N.
* subr.el (substitute-key-definition): New function.
Replaces all bindings to one function in one map
with another function.
* xterm.el: Use substitute-key-definition to get rid of keys
that do suspend-emacs.
1986-06-05 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* simple.el (fundamental-mode):
Provide a fundamental-mode-map in case user does local-set-key.
* picture.el (picture-mode):
New key bindings for setting insert motion direction:
C-c <, C-c >, C-c ^ and C-c . instead of M- chars.
* rmail.el (rmail-reply): When putting From into In-reply-to,
stop at any newline.
* mail-utils.el (mail-strip-quoted-names):
Consider newlines like other whitespace for <...> hacks.
* bytecomp.el (byte-compile-cond{,-1}):
Handling of singleton clauses that are not last.
Handling of cond with no clauses.
* startup.el (command-line): Switch to *scratch* before
running initial-major-mode, and do this only if *scratch* exists.
* compare-w.el: Simplify the handling of `size':
always reduce size not to exceed the amount of space
left in either buffer.
1986-06-04 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* man.el (manual-entry): Use new variables manual-program,
manual-formatted-dir-prefix and manual-formatted-dirlist,
defined in paths.el.

Don't expand-file-name of "loadst". Let start-process search
the exec-path for it.

Allow and discard spaces at end of line.
* texinfo.el:
Split most of this into new file texinfmt.el.

Bind help-form only while the read-char is done;
don't interfere with recursive edits.
1986-05-29 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
* info.el (Info-validate): If file is valid,
erase the buffer of problems found previously.
Non-re search was used by mistake to search for regexps; fix.
* nroff-mode.el (electric-nroff-newline):
Leave point between the open-directive and the close-directive,
as it was supposed to do.
Add some directive-pairs to nroff-brace-table.
1986-05-28 Richard M. Stallman (rms@prep)
