* eshell/esh-proc.el (eshell-remove-process-entry):
Fix `message' calls to ensure first arg is a format string.
The change was made only when these two conditions were satisfied:
[1] when there is a possibility that the arguments would cause an error

[2] if the arg to `message' could not have been nil in the code.

to a command when no args are given.
* eshell/esh-arg.el (eshell-parse-double-quote): If a
double-quoted argument resolves to nil, return it as an empty
string rather than as nil. This made it impossible to pass "" to
a shell script as a null string argument.

* eshell/esh-cmd.el (eshell-eval-command): If the return value of
`eshell-resume-eval' is wrapped in a list, it indicates that the
command was run asynchronously. In that case, unwrap the value
before checking the delimiter value.
* eshell/em-cmpl.el (eshell-complete-parse-arguments): If the
character before a space at the end of a line is \, assume the space

* eshell/em-ls.el (eshell-ls-file): There are times with
size-width is nil and uncomputed (when directories are created in
dired, for example); in this case, 4 is reasonable default value,
although it may caused skewed new entries (which could be avoided
by returning the original value of 8 in all cases, but 99% of the
time this is a waste of whitespace).
2003-11-16 John Wiegley <>

* eshell/esh-mode.el (window-height test): Make certain that
`eshell-stringify-t' is non-nil.
(eshell-password-prompt-regexp): Changed to a much simpler
password regexp.
(eshell-send-input): If `eshell-invoke-directly' returns t,
directly invoke the parsed command using `eval'. This improves
turn-around time on simple commands by a factor of three or
greater, such as cd, ls, pwd, etc. -- which get used very often.
It also conserves thousands of cons cells per call (since
`eshell-do-eval' consumes memory like a Cookie Monster set loose
in the Pacific Cookie Company).
* eshell/esh-test.el (eshell-test): Whitespace fix.
* eshell/em-ls.el (eshell-ls-insert-directory):
Make `eshell-ls-initial-args' nil when inserting directory contents.
* eshell/em-script.el (eshell-script-initialize): Add names to
`eshell-complex-commands, since `source' and `.' are complex.
* eshell/esh-cmd.el (eshell-rewrite-for-command)
(eshell-rewrite-while-command): Use `eshell-protect' instead of
(eshell-rewrite-if-command): Use `eshell-protect' to wrap the call
(eshell-separate-commands): Whitespace fix.
(eshell-complex-commands): Added a new list of names, for
determining whether a given command is as simple as it looks.
(eshell-invoke-directly): New function. Returns t if a command
should be invoked directly (using `eval'), rather than indirectly
using `eshell-do-eval'.
(eshell-do-eval): Whitespace fix.
* eshell/em-unix.el (eshell-default-target-is-dot): New variable,
which provides an emulation of the DOS shell behavior of assuming
that cp/mv/ln should copy/move/link to the current directory.
(eshell-remove-entries): Added a doc string.
(eshell-shuffle-files): Removed the check for `target' being null.
(eshell-mvcp-template, eshell-mvcpln-template): Renamed
`eshell-mvcp-template' to `eshell-mvcpln-template', and extended
it to do a smarter check of whether a destination was provided.
(eshell/mv, eshell/cp): Enable `:preserve-args'.
(eshell/ln): Enable `:preserve-args', and use
`eshell-mvcpln-template' to implement the body of the function.
(eshell/cat, eshell/make, eshell-poor-mans-grep, eshell-grep)
(eshell/du, eshell/diff, eshell/locate): Stringify the argument
list after flattening it. This makes it possible to cat files
with numerical names.
(eshell-unix-initialize): Added several names to
(eshell-unix-command-complex-p): Return t if a given command name
may result in external processes being invoked.
* eshell/em-glob.el (eshell-glob-show-progress): Make this
variable nil by default, since it slows down glob processing by a
factor of two or more, and increases memory consumption.
* eshell/em-smart.el: Added a note about how memory consumptive
smart display mode can be (at least this is true in Emacs 21).
(eshell-smart-initialize): Whitespace fix.
(eshell-refresh-windows): Use `if' instead of `when'.
(eshell-smart-scroll-window): Calling `save-current-buffer' was
not necessary.
(eshell-currently-handling-window): Added a missing global variable.
* eshell/em-ls.el (eshell-do-ls): Code simplification.
(eshell-ls-sort-entries, eshell-ls-entries, eshell-ls-dir):
Whitespace fix.
(eshell-ls-exclude-hidden): Added this variable in addition to
`eshell-ls-exclude-regexp'. This one prevents files beginning
with . from even being read, which can improve memory consumption
quite a bit.
(eshell-ls-dir): If `eshell-ls-exclude-hidden' is non-nil, do not
read file entries beginning with a dot. In home directories with
lots of hidden files, fully two-thirds of the time spent in ls is
used to read directory entries that are immediately thrown away.
(eshell-ls-initial-args): Added back this configuration variable,
for specifying default initial arguments to every call to ls.
Much faster than using an alias to do the same thing.
(eshell-do-ls): Use `eshell-ls-initial-args', if set.
(eshell-ls-dir): Whitespace change.
* eshell/em-dirs.el (eshell/pwd): Small code simplification.
* eshell/esh-util.el: Don't require `ange-ftp' if it's not available.
(eshell-stringify-t): Added a customization variable, to indicate
whether `t' should be rendered as a string at all. If not, one
can still determine if the result of an expression is true using
"file-exists-p FILE && echo true".
(eshell-stringify): If `eshell-stringify-t' is nil, don't
stringify t!
* eshell/esh-module.el: Whitespace fix.
* eshell/em-alias.el (eshell-alias-initialize):
Added `eshell-command-aliased-p' to `eshell-complex-commands'.
(eshell-command-aliased-p): New function that returns t if a
command name names an aliased.

* eshell/esh-util.el: Added a global form which declares an
autoload for `parse-time-string', if that function is not already

* eshell/em-ls.el (eshell-ls-applicable): Extended this function
to be aware of ange-ftp user info.
(eshell-do-ls): Bind `ange-cache'. Also, use `eshell-file-attributes'.
(eshell-ls-annotate): Use `eshell-file-attributes'.
(eshell-ls-file): Made the user-id printing code a bit smarter.
* eshell/esh-util.el (eshell-ange-ls-uids): Added variable, to
allow identification of alias user ids in remote directories.
It's manual, but there's no other way to know when the current user
on the local machine, is also the owning user on the remote machine.
(fboundp): Bind `ange-cache'.
(eshell-directory-files-and-attributes): Re-organized the logic a
bit to use `eshell-file-attributes' instead of `file-attributes'.
The former is more sensitive to directories that are read via FTP,
and knows how to use ange-ftp to determine full attribute
information, instead of just the name and last modtime.
(eshell-current-ange-uids): Return the current user id when in a
remote directory.
(eshell-parse-ange-ls): Parse a full directory listing that has
been returned by ange-ftp.
(eshell-file-attributes): This beefed up version of
`file-attributes' is only special if the user is currently in a
remote directory, in which case it does a lot of work to find out
what the real attributes of a file are, as they appear on the
remote machine. This makes usage of remote directories (i.e.,
ange-ftp pathnames) much more useful. You can now use Eshell as a
full-fledged FTP client, with much more manipulation ability than
most other clients.
* eshell/em-unix.el (eshell-du-prefer-over-ange): Added a new
variable, which means that Eshell's du should always be preferred
in remote directories.
(eshell-shuffle-files): Use `eshell-file-attributes', rather than
just `file-attributes'.
(eshell-mvcp-template): Bind `ange-cache', to improve performance
when reading remote directories. This is an Eshell-specific
variable (not part of ange-ftp).
(eshell/ln): Bind `ange-cache'.
(eshell/du): Added some extra logic for determining when to use
Eshell's du (which is slow), and when to use the external version
(which may or may not exist).
* eshell/em-rebind.el (eshell-delchar-or-maybe-eof):
Call `eshell-interactive-process', rather than using
`get-buffer-process', since backgrounded processes don't count in
the context of this function's logic.
* eshell/esh-arg.el (eshell-parse-double-quote): Moved a call to
`forward-char', so that null strings are parsed correctly.
2000-09-13 John Wiegley <>
* eshell/em-pred.el (eshell-pred-file-type)
(eshell-pred-file-links, eshell-pred-file-size):
Use `eshell-file-attributes'. This is more correct over ange-ftp.
* eshell/em-glob.el (eshell-extended-glob): Bind `ange-cache', so
that remote file globbing is more efficient.
* eshell/em-ls.el (eshell-ls-dir): Use `expand-file-name' when
gathering the files and attributes within a directory.
* eshell/em-unix.el (eshell/cat): If any of the files passed on
the command line is a special file (not a regular file, directory
or symlink), always attempt to call the external version of cat.

subprocess input is send immediately.
(eshell-toggle-direct-send): New function.
(eshell-self-insert-command): New function.
(eshell-intercept-commands): New function.
(eshell-send-input): If direct subprocess sending is enabled,
don't echo any input to the Eshell buffer. Let the subprocess
handle that. This requires "stty echo" in bash, for example.

* eshell/em-smart.el (eshell-smart-redisplay): Added a safety
catch, in case re-centering point at bottom messes up the display.
This happens frequently in Emacs 21, due I believe to variable
line heights.

* eshell/esh-cmd.el (eshell-rewrite-while-command):
(eshell-rewrite-for-command): Use `eshell-copy-handles' instead of

current set of open handles. This is needed by the looping
(eshell-do-eval): Fixed while and if, so that the eshell-test-body

* eshell/em-cmpl.el (eshell-cmpl-use-paring): Mirror
declaration for pcomplete-use-paring.
(eshell-cmpl-initialize): Set pcomplete-use-paring based on the
value of eshell-cmpl-use-paring.
* pcomplete.el (pcomplete-use-paring): New config variable, to
indicate whether paring should be used.
(pcomplete-do-complete): If pcomplete-use-paring is t, pare out
completion alternatives that have already been used.
* eshell/esh-mode.el (eshell-repeat-argument): Added function,
bound to C-c C-y, which will repeat the previous N arguments
(based on prefix argument).
(eshell-mode): Bind C-c C-y to eshell-repeat-argument.
* eshell/esh-cmd.el (eshell/which): Don't kill the *Help* buffer
if there is no *Help* buffer. This is for XEmacs, which renames
its help buffers uniquely. TODO: Find out what the current buffer
name to delete is.
* eshell/esh-util.el (eshell-read-passwd-file): Only keep the
first entry that correlates to a passwd/group number. Later
entries (used for group/user name aliasing to multiple IDs) are

* eshell/em-unix.el (eshell/du, eshell/cat, eshell/make)
(eshell-grep, eshell/diff, eshell/locate):
* eshell/em-dirs.el (eshell-dirs-substitute-cd): Flatten the
argument list, before passing it to the system command.
* eshell/esh-mode.el (eshell-find-tag): Added a special version of
`find-tag' for use at final position in Eshell buffers (which
otherwise triggers an error on Emacs 21).
(eshell-mode): Bind M-. to `eshell-find-tag' with the Eshell
buffer, if it is currently bound to `find-tag'.
* eshell/em-dirs.el (eshell/cd): cd commands that look up
directory parts (like "cd old new", or "cd =regexp"), are now case
sensitive on non-Windows/DOS platforms.
* eshell/esh-mode.el (eshell-parse-command-input): When a user
types RET after an open delimiter (like "), display a message
indicating that Eshell is waiting for the closing delimiter.
* eshell/esh-var.el (eshell/unset): Added a command for unsetting
