ESS[BUGS] and ESS[JAGS]: typing = now results in <-
2009-02-23 Rodney Sparapani <>
* Makeconf: update LISPDIR, INFODIR, ETCDIR
for XEmacs. Use the modern default
/usr/local/share/xemacs rather than the
deprecated /usr/local/lib/xemacs. Also,
default to the site-packages subdirectory
rather than xemacs-packages, this allows
you more freedom to update the SUMO packages
without touching your ESS installation and
vice versa.

* Version 5.3.11 released.
2009-01-21 Rodney Sparapani <>

new simplified installation instructions for Windows

now complete)
2009-01-07 Rodney Sparapani <>
* doc/Makefile (TEXISRC): add help-jags.texi to list
* doc/help-jags.texi
(ESS(JAGS)--Log files):
the "log" of the run is now .jog (like BUGS which
is .bog); .out created too many problems since the BOA
output files have that extension as well
(ESS(JAGS)--Model files):
adding 2 new local variables: ess-jags-burnin and
ess-jags-update. ESS[BUGS] has similar variables, but
the modern defaults are an order of magnitude bigger, so
it seemed like creating new variables was warranted

* Makeconf and doc/readme.texi (README re-organization):
Add TOC for plaintext format only, requires re-defining MAKETXT
2008-12-02 Rodney Sparapani <>
* doc/readme.texi and doc/Makefile (README re-organization):
re-arrange so that installation information comes in the
4/5th sections rather than much further down (7/8th); also
massaged wording in the intro which no longer requires as much
perl (which I never really understood since I don't speak perl;
shall we stick to what we all know: e-lisp/make/texi/not perl/etc.)

2004-02-19 Stephen Eglen <>
* doc/ess.texi (ESS processes on Remote Computers): add brief
notes on how to get a ssh buffer. Note that URL currently spills

2002-11-29 Stephen Eglen <>

* doc/ess.texi: Quite a few updates to the documentation:
Include ess-defs.texi for @Sl macro.

Remove bold from ESS/S.

Change "more historic"->"older"
Correct exit() entry in the variable and command index.
Remove multiple references to Emacs/XEmacs differences in

Updating info for new version
* ANNOUNCE, doc/authors.texi, doc/getting.texi, doc/inst_cvs.texi, doc/newfeat.texi, doc/requires.texi, info/, info/, info/, info/, info/, README:
docs: I was trying to create a PDF version of ANNOUNCE with
texi2dvi and dvipdf (is there a better way?). And, certain
functions like @email and @code betray unsightly behavior.
I replaced @email with @uref:mailto and @code with @display.
You may note that a better translation of @code would be
@example, but @example misbehaves as well. @display doesn't
make a difference for info or HTML, but it does for PDF.
However, there doesn't appear to be an alternative for the
moment. Another bug, is texi2html ignores the @enumerate
argument (besides mishandling @macro statements). Oh joy!
2002-08-05 rsparapa <>
* ANNOUNCE, doc/announc.texi, doc/Makefile, doc/readme.texi, README, info/
docs: some final minor changes to docs before release. Also,
attempted to address Martin's concern in doc/Makefile with
respect to install. Now, you can differentiate between
making in the doc directory and installing elsewhere as the
documentation indicates. The target install has returned for
info files only.
2002-08-02 rsparapa <>
* doc/dir, doc/help-sas.texi, doc/Makefile, info/, info/, README, info/
info: Rich's comment made me realize that we may also need
to "install" the dir file. So, I changed the Makefile to:
@echo "making Info documentation..."
$(MAKEINFO) ess.texi
test -f $(INFODIR)/dir || $(INSTALL) dir $(INFODIR)
I suppose that a more sophisticated approach could be taken,
but this is probably good enough for now. I believe that
all issues that I was working on are now complete. I'm going
on vacation on 8/7 and then to JSM the following week, but I
should have e-mail and internet access the whole time. Did
someone once say "Release early and release often"?
2002-08-01 rsparapa <>
* info/dir:
dir: I discovered what the problem is with @direntry and
GNU Emacs 21. Apparently, the functionality differs
between XEmacs and Emacs. Under XEmacs, the @direntry
has precedence over the dir file. Emacs appears to be
just the opposite. So, I edited the dir file by hand.
Not sure where this file comes from. info/emacs does
not create this file in a directory that doesn't
already have one. The file doesn't seem to be
created by makeinfo and thats where the problem lies.
There is no synchronization between @direntry and dir
once dir has been created (however that happens). The
best solution at present is to keep the two in synch
by hand. Which really isn't that big of a deal since
we are only talking about one line being identical in
dir and ess.texi

* doc/ess.texi, README:
HTML docs: a few tweaks to the texinfo to create a
reasonable HTML table of contents
* doc/ess.texi, README:
doc bug: I was testing out the info docs and I realized that
the "Detailed Node List" and the actual nodes for Installation
were different. In this case, it would lead you to believe
that there weren't any relevant topics in the Installation
section because you see the "Detailed" list first, but there's
nothing on it. I suppose you could carefully check each "Detailed"
vs. actual node combination, but that would be time-consuming and
prone to failure. And, I also realized that nobody would want a
100 item list when they can drill-down from a 10 item list anyways.
So, I was lazy and just commented out the entire "Detailed Node List".

more doc changes: Where should I begin? I realized that having info files might
not be helpful if you didn't already have ESS installed. So, I decided to
create HTML docs and put them @
But, texi2html doesn't work with version.texi. After pulling my hair out, I
decided to read the documentation. Guess what? texi2html doesn't support
@macro commands. So, instead of @essver{}, I replaced those references by
@include ../VERSION which seems to work. Of course, this was after I re-did the
doc/Makefile thinking there was something wrong in there. The HTML docs are now
on the net. And, lots of other "improvements" to the docs.

info: running some long SAS jobs, ZZZZZzzzzZZZZZ...
Meanwhile, re-wrote parts of the intro and re-arranged some of the
documentation categories; boy is that fun. NOT! Promoted "Help for
the S family" and "Help for SAS" to main categories so you
don't have to poke around so long. One bugaboo that remains
with GNU Emacs 21.1-21.3 is the @direntry which is set to:
* ESS: (ess). Emacs Speaks Statistics (S/S+/R, SAS, BUGS, Stata, XLisp-Stat).
but, Emacs sadly reports: ESS Version 5.x.y (was: S-mode).
This works fine on XEmacs 21.4.8 and I'm using texinfo 4.2
* lisp/ess-utils.el:
ess-kermit-get, ess-kermit-send
I had to replace (shell) with ess-sas-goto-shell; maybe we should
generalize ess-sas-goto-shell and ess-sas-shell-buffer in ess-utils.el too

ESS[SAS] info documentation: lots of minor changes that

more Makefile changes: Apparently, we had two different methods for
replacing old version numbers with new ones. For some reason, the
old method based on perl stopped working. So, we created a new
method based on @essver{}. However, the old version targets and
dependencies remained. I have no idea what kind of weirdness
resulted from that. Just in case, I'm removing the old method.

ESS[SAS]: ess-sleep-for now defaults to 5 seconds on Windows
only (which was where the problem was initially)

* lisp/ess-utils.el:
ess-utils.el: fixed a bug in ess-save-and-set-local-variables;
more exhaustive testing later tonight
* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ESS[SAS]: ess-save-and-set-local-variables is now called
from ess-sas-submit-sh, ess-sas-submit-windows and
ess-sas-submit-mac rather than save-buffer which formerly
appeared in ess-sas-submit. Not, sure what to do with
ess-sas-submit-iESS, but it should not be called in
ess-sas-submit-region. Also, now called in
ess-sas-data-view so you can take advantage of the
recently added ess-sas-data-view-fsview-statement
buffer-local variable.
* lisp/ess-utils.el:
ess-utils.el: added 2 new functions
ess-search-except: searches forward for a regexp, stores as match 1
and optionally, ignores results that also match a second regexp parameter,
and optionally, searches backward for a third non-nil parameter
ess-save-and-set-local-variables: if a buffer is modified, save the
buffer and if Local Variables are defined, update them with revert
returning t if buffer was modified and nil otherwise
* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ESS[SAS], ess-sas-data-view: Now, I'm adding features just for myself.
I've always wanted the capability to add a PROC FSVIEW statement to an
ess-sas-data-view call, but I just never got around to it. You can
configure it with the string ess-sas-data-view-fsview-statement. Also,
you can now change the PROC FSVIEW command itself with
ess-sas-data-view-fsview-command and I renamed ess-sas-data-view-options
to ess-sas-data-view-submit-options to make it more clear what it does
(i.e. so you don't confuse -options with -fsview-command).

2002-07-22 rsparapa <>
* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ESS[SAS]: extended ess-sas-goto-shell to take an optional
argument if non-nil, then set-buffer rather than switch. This
new call replaces code chunks in ess-sas-submit-region,
ess-sas-data-view and ess-sas-graph-view. Furthermore, this
behavior is what was intended in nearly all
(ess-sas-goto-shell) calls and I have replaced them all with
(ess-sas-goto-shell t); except for the key-bindings for F8/F3
and the code that deals with kermit file transfers which require
the old behavior. Have only tested on XEmacs and 'sh, so YMMV.
* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ESS[SAS]: ess-sas-goto-shell resurrected! Our recent discussion
with respect to each SAS program, perhaps, needing it's own
ess-sas-submit-method brought me back to ancient discussions
of asynchronous shell buffer names. Emacs and XEmacs named them
differently. Our solution was to use & for 'sh and start for 'ms-dos
to make synchronous processes asynchronous. However, this made
ess-sas-goto-shell unnecessary since the buffer was always *shell*.
Now, I added the variable ess-sas-shell-buffer which is buffer-local
and defaults to *shell*. If you set this to something else, then you
will get another shell buffer. And, ess-sas-goto-shell will take you
to whichever one you need. So, we are back to the original function.
I also moved the add-hook call to the shell creation step since it
seemed like over-kill to call it every time you did ess-sas-submit-sh.
Is this enough explanation or am I boring you?

* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ESS[SAS]: moved ess-kermit- variables to ess-cust.el and
ess-kermit- functions to ess-utils.el
* lisp/ess-cust.el:
ess-cust.el: applied Stephen's patch; also changed more :types
from "string" to 'string; finally, fixed custom-ize for SAS; it
always worked if you specified 'ess-sas for the
group, but never worked if you specified 'ess; this was because
defgroup defined 'ess-SAS rather than 'ess-sas; and, now I understand
what :prefix does; we discussed this previously and nobody knew
(the documentation doesn't say either); :prefix is the beginning of
the variable name that the custom-ize buffer doesn't show you;
therefore, it seems that :prefix should be "ess-" for 'ess-sas;
I think this is what it always was, but now I know this is right;
only tested this on XEmacs 21.4.8 which is nearly bullet-proof;
please test on buggier versions of (x)emacs

ess-search-except: I believe it does what we want now. Sorry, to make this
a multi-stage commit, but I can think in SAS, not elisp yet :o)
* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ess-search-except: I had some free time and I decided to
write a function to perform the complex searches
that are necessary for ess-sas-data-view. I suppose a function
like this would be valuable for ess-sas-graph-view and for
other packages as well. After a bit more testing, I'll put
it some place more appropriate. I suppose we don't
have alot of time left before 5.2.0
* lisp/essa-sas.el:
ess-sas-data-view: the code will make your head hurt, but
the search for a permanent SAS data just got a little smarter.
After it finds a tentative candidate in a forward search,
it checks if it is a work./first./last. If so, then it
backward searches. I suppose a better approach would be
to write an ess-search function that takes arguments
for regexp, direction, and exceptions to ignore. I
don't have time right now, but let's add it to the TODO.

ess-sas-graph-view) could also be accessable via the mouse.
Any hints as to how to do it would be appreciated. Currently, you have
to move the point manually or re-type the dataset/graph that you want
to view. Just clicking on a dataset/graph would be easier.

ESS[SAS]: changes for more user friendly kermit file transfers;
ess-kermit-prefix default is now # which should be os-independent;
former defaults, : or ], could be problematic and were
based on ange-ftp/efs/tramp (an unnecessary restriction it turns out);
when ess-sas-goto is passed the suffix "log" or "lst" ess-kermit-get
is called if the file starts with ess-kermit-prefix; other extensions
could be dangerous since you might have altered the local copy whereas
.log and .lst files are only being modified by the SAS batch job; as
long as the integrity of the .sas program is maintained .log and .lst
can always be retrieved if an unwanted transfer overwrites them

There is a fundamental problem in both help-s.texi and help-sas.texi.
Make the ess.dvi and then look at the S and SAS chapters.
Both chapters have a trailing piece of the node-name as the last line

it does not get used for R and it generates a harmless extra component to

Start normally for S-Plus 6.1. Inform the user to start S-Plus 6.0
from the icon and than connect to it with `S+6-existing'. Give an error
message if `inferior-S+6-program-name' doesn't point to S-Plus 6."
S-Plus 6.1 starts up exceedingly slowly. I changed the delay time in
M-x S+6-initiate to 60 seconds (double what we needed for M-x S+4).
The is the delay needed for my 300MHz machine. I will make this a

$(ESSINFODIR)/ ess.texi help-sas.texi inst_tar.texi
The @display requires everything to be left justified. Otherwise the
indentations are interpreted as hard spaces.
Why are some lines in @display and others in @example? They look the same.

I added the control-function keys to help-sas.texi
I fixed the help menu pointers to the empty operating system nodes.
As long as I am doing info, I fixed up help-s.texi and installed it.
It compiles correctly. It still needs to be read carefully to make sure
it is coherent.

It has no @menu statements. This made it impossible for me to makeinfo. So,
instead I created help-sas.texi from scratch based on README.SAS. Note that
the @menu commands will cause problems if they contain : so I've been using --.
Also note that makeinfo appears to create working info pages, but texi2dvi
does not create documents correctly. It's a shame since they are very nice,
except for garbage which appears to be mangled next, previous, and up. This will
cause us alot of problems if we want to maintain
one source and produce .info, .html and .pdf (I actually only tried viewing

* lisp/ess-iw32.el:
The repair of the C-c C-l problem reported by S.McClatchie
<> and Bj”©Ìrn-Helge Mevik <>
required a change to ess-command in ess-iw32.el. I believe the problem
was limited to Windows machines and first appeared in 5.1.19 when I added
ess-command to ess-iw32.el.
The temporary buffer buf was not associated with an ESS process. Now it is.
This is a consequence of how I created a windows version of
ess-command. Part of loading a file is checking whether the new file
would overwrite any old S language objects. This in turn requires
running search() which uses ess-command. The temporary buffer created
to hold the results of the search was not associated with an ESS
process. Therefore when ess-command checks whether it is running
under Windows, it finds instead that it is in the tbuffer which is not
connected with an ESS process so it can't decide and quits. Since the
original buffer that the user was trying to load was correctly
connected to an ESS process, the user is justifiably confused.
The repair is done at the most central point, at the ess-command for

ESS[SAS]: mult-line comments of the /* */ variety are always
fontified correctly because they are handled by grammar rather
than regular expressions. OTOH, * ; and %* ; comments have only
worked in the past on single line comments. This is particularly
annoying in SAS-log-mode since a single-line comment will often
be flowed and not fontified correctly. There is no solution TIKO
for the multiple line problem so I changed the regular expression
to just fontify the first line which will at least allow you to
recognize that a comment is beginning which is better than the
way it was before.

added Rodney to the author list.

9. I started to add the pager and editor discussion to ess.texi

completely rewritten. I may do this, but not tonight.
This entire section describes the behavior pattern that we do not
encourage. It describes the "S objects are real" philosophy deprecated
in the README.S file.
The revision can leave that in, but must have a section based on
the "Source code is real" philosophy.

I finally read the latest essa-sas.el
1. I found ess-sas-toggle-sas-mode several months ago and started to use it.
I like it. Now that I have read it closely I revised it and renamed it.
;;; this version of ess-sas-toggle-log-sas-mode
;;; 1. can be included in .emacs as
;;; (ess-sas-toggle-log-sas-mode t)
;;; because it doesn't need to find a .log file.
;;; 2. works if there is already an association for .log files.
;;; 3. restores the old association when SAS-mode is deleted.
;;; 4. works with the file it has, doesn't kill it and get a fresh copy.
;;; This matters for large log files and slow telephone connections.
;;; 5. I changed its name to be more descriptive.
2. How is kermit used by ESS?
I see definititions for ess-kermit-command ess-kermit-get ess-kermit-send,
but do not see any places they are used.
I think these three items should be separated into a new ess-kermit.el
rather than buried in essa-sas.el. Are they restricted to ess in any way?
Might they be better as a new kermit.el?
3. You hardwired the `txt' extension into ess-sas-file-path. That should
be sensitive to the value of ess-sas-suffix-1 and ess-sas-suffix-2.
4. ess-sas-submit-mac is the only ess-sas-submit* that does not have
ess-sas-submit-command-options. I don't understand
ess-sas-submit-command-options. Why is it buffer-local? I think it
should depend on the host and the version of sas, not on the command file. Am I misunderstanding what is going on?
5. ess-revert-wisely in essa-sas.el and ess-revert in essl-bug.el are identical.
This suggests that the ess-revert name should be used and moved to ess-utils.el

get-ess-process. I changed error message to say buffer is not

saying that no ESS process is running)
inferior-ess-mode-menu. Added "What is this? (beta)"
ess-transcript-mode-menu. Added "What is this? (beta)"
ess-mode-menu. Added "What is this? (beta)"
ChangeLog: ess-mous changes.
I tested it on windows for R, S+4, and Sqpe+4.
I am having line-ending problems with Sqpe+4 but otherwise it looks ok.
Please look at it.
I found a problem which I am unsure how to solve. The variable
`ess-current-process-name' in the `*R*' buffer can have the value
"S+4". All I have to do is open an S+4 process and an R process, then
C-c C-s the file.s buffer to S+4 and then switch to the R process.
I think, but am willing to hear arguments against it, that anytime an
inferior-ess-mode buffer is made current, then it should automatically
reset `ess-current-process-name' to refer to itself. I'm not sure how
to do that. This is explicitly not a buffer-local variable. Is there
a hook that gets called when we change into a buffer, either by C-x b
or by clicking?
