Check for nilness of rmail-dont-reply-to-names and skip strip
loop if so.
* loaddefs.el: Elisp -> Emacs-Lisp.
* echistory.el, chistory.el: Elisp -> Emacs-Lisp.
* rmail.el:
Various functions - If message counters aren't set, set them.
Expunge unsets them. Make expunge give running count in
minibuffer messages.
1985-06-14 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* lisp-mode.el, startup.el, loadup.el:
Avoid problem with term "elisp".
Rename elisp-interaction-FOO to lisp-interaction-FOO,
rename all other elisp-FOO to emacs-lisp-FOO.
1985-06-14 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* rmail.el (rmail-mode-1):
Use %b instead of %17b in mode-line-format to leave more room for
attributes (some of us like time in the modeline).
* rmail.el:
Make rmail-summary-goto-msg barf if the summary is invalid (e.g.
after `e' or `g') and tell user to make a new one, leaving them in
the rmail window which is right place to do it.
* rmail.el:
Add commands for user to set attributes. rlk called these
keywords and duplicated code (the only `attributes' were
"deleted" and "answered"). I don't think the distinction is worth
it. Add command for summarizing by attribute. Make
`rmail-new-summary' support it.
* rmail.el (rmail-show-message): search instead of re-search.
* rmail.el (rmail-output-to-mail-file): Yechh. Cleaned it up.
* rmail.el (rmail-summary-mode):
Add functions for scrolling current message from summary. After
rlk, only make them bullet proof. Add quit from rmail.
* rmail.el (rmail-new-summary):
Reuse old summary buffers when possible. After rlk, only his way
of doing it was brain damaged.
* rmail.el:
rmail-last-message was off by 1. Fix it and put it on key `>'.
(bug noted by rlk). Make rmail-edit run text-mode-hook. rlk also
had it run `rmail-edit-mode-hook' but this is silly because function
claims to be like text-mode except for two keys.
* rmail.el (rmail-insert-inbox-text):
Chomper wasn't deleting ~/.newmail after moving mail from
/usr/spool/mail/. Make it do the right thing. Use new variable
rmail-spool-directory (default "/usr/spool/mail/") to determine
if movemail should be called (some people use "/spool/mail/").
Probably should move defvar to loaddefs when released.
* simple.el: Flush `blink-matching-paren-ding' and code.
* add-log.el: Flush `add-log-entry-to-log-in-buffer'.
* loaddefs.el:
Changes to reflect partitioning of command history stuff.
Flush autoload of report-emacs-bug, leave the file emacsbug.el for
arpanet sites to use if they want.
* echistory.el: (require 'chistory)
* chistory.el:
Move list-command-history and command-history-mode here. Purpose
of this file is just to look at the history. Also contains
unrelated (to listing) but useful `repeat-matching-complex-command'.
* simple.el (repeat-complex-command):
Replaced its definition with `repeat-edit-nth-complex-command' from
chistory.el, edit form in minibuffer instead of asking for
confirmation. Add new function `edit-and-eval-command' which it
1985-06-13 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* rmail.el (rmail-insert-inbox-text):
Expand file name "movemail" in exec-directory for call-process.
The only reason it worked here before is because exec-directory is
in most people's shell paths.
No, this directory is added automatically to the path
used by call-process. It should have worked before. - RMS
* loaddefs.el: C-z -> C-c in documentation for mail.
autoload report-emacs-bug from emacsbug.el.
* emacsbug.el: New file. Reports bugs with version info.
* helper.el (Helper-describe-bindings):
Make it describe local bindings faster by binding global map to
nil so describe-bindings is faked out.
* lisp-mode.el: First form of prog1 is distinguished.
* loaddefs.el: autoload functions from chistory.el and echistory.el.
* chistory.el:
New file containing two alternatives to `repeat-complex-command'
which put the form in the minibuffer instead of asking for
* echistory.el:
Finished it. Split off two useful but unrelated commands into
chistory.el. Made command-history-mode unable to redo expressions
because there is no sensible way to pick buffer to do it in: now
its just for looking at the history produced by
list-command-history or after electric-command-history throws.
* electric.el: Allow specification of prompt to
Electric-command-loop. Interpret nil max-height argument to
Electric-pop-up-window as license to grab as much of the screen as
necessary if buffer won't fit; also fix fencepost neglect to
account for modeline in height computations.
1985-06-12 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* rmail (rmail-insert-inbox-text)
file-name-directory includes a trailing "/"
1985-06-12 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* shell.el (inferior-lisp-mode):
Call lisp-mode-hook AFTER shell-mode-hook.
* rmail.el (rmail-get-attribute-string):
Did not account for empty attribute string. Neglected to include
leading `,' for rmail-display-message-attributes. Unbound
variable dot-max-save - I guessed that it was really supposed to
be dot-min before the widen (the start of the user visible header)
so I bound it and renamed it dot-min-save.
* ebuff-menu.el:
New variable after-electric-buffer-menu called after select if
non-nil. Bind goal-column to nil while running.
* add-log.el:
New function add-log-entry-to-log-in-buffer. Use when adding
multiple entries to the ChangeLog. Bound to ESC-*. Made it share
code with add-change-log-entry (former calls latter).
1985-06-12 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rmail.el (rmail-get-attribute-string):
Rewritten by rlk to be smaller and more general.
1985-06-11 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* ebuff-menu.el: Make M-C-v scroll-other-window instead of
scroll-down. Make M-v scroll-down.
* ebuff-menu.el, echistory.el: Made them use electric.
* electric.el:
New module for packages that retain control until some event
occurs. Command loop and window maker.
1985-06-10 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* echistory.el:
Made it use helper.el. Remove kill-ring-save stuff pending use of
new winning prin1-to-string for minibuffer hacking.
* view.el: Made it use helper.el.
* helper.el:
New module for packages which want to do help without giving up
1985-06-10 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* sendmail.el:
Switch to C-c as prefix instead of C-z.
1985-06-09 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* simple.el:
Rename kill-ring-save to copy-region-as-kill.
Old name still works.
* tags.el (visit-tag-table-buffer):
Give error unless tag table starts with a formfeed
as it should.
* sendmail.el:
Install C-z w as mail-signature.
Fix bug of reinserting --text...-- in wrong place
when a null subject was deleted.
* macros.el (kbd-macro-query):
Don't ask for input when macro is being defined.
When macro is executing, make prompt really appear.
In loaddefs, put this on C-x q.
1985-06-09 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* dired.el:
Fix bugs in dired introduced by use of auto-save-file-name-p. Don't
call it if it isn't fbound (just look for `#'). Add second arg to
dired-get-filename which says just return nil (no error) if there
is no filename on line. Rename dired-mark-backup-and-temp-files
to be dired-mark-backup-and-auto-save-files.
1985-06-08 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* ebuff-menu.el (electric-buffer-list):
Lost if # lines < window-min-height and there was only one window.
Make it win!
* echistory.el:
New file - implements command history interface (electric and
plain jane listing). Waiting for opinions before I put it in
* ebuff-menu.el (electric-buffer-list):
Went to char select after Buffer-menu-execute, which can kill
lines. So set mark at select before execute and go to mark before
select. Winnage.
* buff-menu.el:
Stomp all kinds of roaches. Buffer-menu-do-kills was doing re-search
when it wanted to do search (no harm, but faster). Fix fencepost
error, when it killed a buffer line, it neglected to move back,
thereby sitting on potential `K' which was missed. Wrap
save-excursion around kill-buffer, it seems that kill-buffer changes
something when it asks about mod file (don't ask me ...).
Buffer-menu-do-saves was searching for "\n.S", it meant re-search.
Teach Buffer-menu-unmark how to handle `%' and `*' at same time.
* files.el (find-file-no-select):
Don't run dired if value of new variable find-file-run-dired is
nil. t by default.
1985-06-07 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* options.el (list-options): Use substitute-command-keys.
* loaddefs.el (view-file, view-buffer, electric-buffer-list):
Mention view-hook. Mention electric-buffer-menu-mode-hook.
* ebuff-menu.el:
Restrict dot to actual buffer description line. Document some
functions. Make electric-buffer-menu-describe-mode interactive.
Make C-g shutup when it exits, advertise it as exit char.
Restrict help so that window configuration lossage is impossible
(could lose if went into full blown help). Add function for
describing help options. Add `v' command for viewing buffer and
returning to the Electric Buffer List.
* loaddefs.el: autoload edit-picture.
* picture.el: New "Major" mode for editing pictures and tables.
* view.el:
Fix bug with non-file-buffer names. Use buffer name instead in
these cases. New variable view-hook.
1985-06-06 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* view.el:
(provide 'view)
defined unadvertised c-m-a, c-m-e, c-m-b, c-m-f
at end of buffer says how to exit.
1985-06-06 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* view.el:
Restrict quit to q, C-c, C-z. Fill keymaps with new function
view-undefined which dings and tells you how to quit or get help.
Add eval-expression but don't advertise it.
* indent.el (edit-tab-stops-note-changes):
Make *Tab Stops* buffer go away when changes are installed by
switching to edit-tab-stops-buffer and burying *Tab Stops*.
1985-06-06 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* fill.el:
New function fill-individual-paragraphs.
* dired.el:
Rename dired-mark-temp-files to dired-mark-auto-save-files,
and make it use auto-save-file-name-p.
* bytecode.el (byte-recompile-directory):
Use auto-save-file-name-p. Provide default definition of same.
* files.el:
Define auto-save-file-name-p.
1985-06-04 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* sendmail.el (sendmail-send-it):
Somewhat gratuitously deleting empty subject lines.
/usr/lib/sendmail seems smart enough (!) to hack this itself
1985-06-04 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* info.el (Info-find-node, Info-exit):
Use expansion of filename in error message on file not found in
Info-find-node. Bury the current buffer in Info-exit because you
can say C-h i if you want to look at it again.
* simple.el (goal-column):
Use \\[...] to refer to set-goal-column in variable documentation.
* simple.el (function-called-at-dot, variable-at-dot):
Eliminate redundant testing of nil'ness of obj in and clauses.
* simple.el (describe-variable):
Bind enable-recursive-minibuffers so can use C-h v. It would be
nice if instead could enable JUST C-h v (or C-h f for
* aton.el (occur-menu):
Bogus message in minibuffer claimed C-z expanded menu entry.
Use substitute-command-keys to get the right key. Move to the
first line if rebuild-summary, else the next line. Make the
occur menu buffer read-only.
1985-06-03 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* mim-mode.el:
Fix bugs related to moving across atoms in other packages (i.e.
with trailers).
1985-06-03 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* c-mode.el (indent-c-exp, calculate-c-indent):
Fix indentation of line following a #-directive in C-M-Q,
by doing essentially what calculate-c-indent does.
New subroutine c-backward-to-start-of-if.
* isearch.el:
Don't allow reverse search to match a string straddling the
initial value of dot.
* simple.el (read-quoted-char):
Handle quitting correctly (really quit unless first input char).
Echo with spaces between chars and dash after
even if have prompt string.
1985-06-03 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* mim-mode.el, medit.el:
Clean up the documentation, use \\[...] where appropriate.
Change a few names. Flush binding of uppercase letters in keymaps.
* shell.el (run-lisp):
Make it put the *lisp* buffer in inferior-lisp-mode as
claimed in NEWS.
1985-06-02 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rnews.el (news-get-pruned-list-of-files):
Sort final list of files numerically.
* simple.el, time.el, loadst.el (Info-directory):
Process exec-directory using expand-file-name
so as not to depend on whether it ends in /.
* simple.el: define turn-on-auto-fill.
1985-06-01 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* loaddefs.el: Update documentation for rmail.
* lisp-mode.el (calculate-lisp-indent):
Asked (fboundp 'lisp-indent-hook). Right question is boundp.
* scheme-mode.el (calculate-scheme-indent): Ditto.
* compile.el (next-error): Missed a \\[...].
* buff-menu.el:
Use \\[...]. Disambiguate documentation of q command (read as if
you marked buffers with > instead of m, now mention mark `>' and
what command you use to make one).
* loaddefs.el:
Put \ in front of \[ where needed. ' next-error in autoload
definition. Fix typo in electric-buffer-list documentation (also fix
in ebuff-menu).
1985-06-01 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* Many files: put in \\[...] where appropriate.
1985-06-01 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* shell.el (run-lisp):
Make it interactive since loaddefs claims it is.
1985-06-01 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* isearch.el:
Fix quit logic since condition signaled is `quit' now.
Don't reprint echo area if have buffered ^G to handle.
1985-05-31 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* c-mode.el (c-backward-to-noncomment):
Still failed to terminate in some cases (after many #include's and
#defines, comments at beginning of file). Now stop if looking at #
and dot <= lim. It guarantees termination but does it leave dot
at right place for indenter?
1985-05-31 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* simple.el (help-for-help):
Lookup in help-map explicitly; calling help-command no longer works.
* mlconvert.el (fixup-mlisp-syntax):
Skip strings and comments properly. Handle \ in char constants.
* mlconvert.el (fixup-mlisp-symbols):
Skip strings, comments, char constants.
Find symbols even if they have no letters in them.
* mlsupport.el: Insert symbol-value call in use-local-map.
Handle key codes > 127 in local-bind-to-key.
Write ml-modify-syntax-entry.
1985-05-30 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* sendmail.el
Typo made sendmail-send-it lose when mail-interactive
* simple.el
Aborting out of octal read in read-quoted-char restarts
"from the top."
* startup.el
Catch another place where \\[..] was needed
Don't insert copyright info if noninteractive
1985-05-30 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* lisp-mode.el (lisp-send-defun):
Make it interactive since it's on a key. Also, indent lambda like
* view.el:
Improve documentation. Add isearch, previous and next
line (useful in conjunction with recenter and argument). Flush
repeat last command because it really does not repeat all commands.
Make space quit in help scrolling if no more to scroll.
1985-05-30 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* simple.el:
Use \\[...] in doc strings when appropriate.
* simple.el (blink-matching-paren):
Avoid error when (dot) - (dot-min) < 2.
* simple.el (help-command):
Function help-command flushed. C-h now defined as
prefix character.
* startup.el:
Use substitute-command-keys in printing startup message.
* simple.el:
Define advertised-undo == undo, to force startup msg
to say C-x u rather than C-_.
1985-05-29 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rmail.el:
Add C-r command (rmail-edit-current-message) and its commands.
Separated out part of rmail-mode as rmail-mode-1.
* Rename some files so all .el & .elc file names are <= 14 chars.
syntax-check-mim.el => mim-syntax.el (change in mim-mode.el too).
new-version-level.el => grow-vers.el.
scheme-mode.el => scheme.el
compare-windows.el => compare-w.el
electric-buffer-list.el => ebuff-menu.el
1985-05-28 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* simple.el (describe-function)
bind enable-recursive-minibuffers to read fn name
(useful when typing c-h f after m-esc)
* files.el
made create-file-buffer a lisp function (was in src/buffer.c)
* electric-buffer-menu-mode.el
If the first character typed is a space then quit, ie return to
previous window/buffer configuration
1985-05-27 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* fill.el (fill-region-as-paragraph):
It was filling to width (1- fill-column)
except on the last line of a paragraph.
Also make it not delete excess spaces in paragraph indentation,
delete fill prefixes before checking for excess spaces.
1985-05-25 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* c-mode.el:
c-backward-to-noncomment failed to terminate on LF after #include
at beginning of buffer. Make it stop if it sees bobp in such cases.
* isearch.el:
isearch was doing (push-mark odot) inside save-window-excursion,
which loses. Move to outside of save-window-excursion.
1985-05-24 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* loaddefs.el:
Update documentation strings for dired, byte-recompile-directory.
Correct some typos and spelling errors.
1985-05-24 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* add-log.el:
Don't make double blank line when adding to existing entry.
1985-05-23 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* sendmail.el (mail-yank-original):
Arg other than C-u is # columns to indent.
* lisp-mode.el:
Provide default definition of lisp-send-defun, to just get an error.
* shell.el: rename lisp to run-lisp.
* loaddefs.el: make run-lisp autoloading.
1985-05-23 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* files.el
FOO! Local-variables weren't working since hack-local-variables
was searching for "\n^L" not "\n\^L"
* lisp-mode.el, loadup.el, startup.el
renamed lisp-interaction-mode to elisp-interaction-mode
Made elisp-mode call elisp-mode-hook, elisp-interaction-mode call
elisp-interaction-mode-hook. This will break people's init files!
* loaddefs.el
made ".lisp" suffixes get lisp mode. Toto, I don't think we're
using fourteen-character filenames anymore.
Autoload scheme-mode
* scheme-mode.el
installed scheme-mode, courtesy MIT scheme people.
* lisp-mode.el
made mode doc strings use \[...] substitute-command-keys technology
1985-05-23 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* lisp-mode.el:
Renamed lisp-mode to elisp-mode and external-lisp-mode to lisp-mode.
Renamed ...-map variables likewise.
* loaddefs.el:
Made ".el" files use elisp-mode; ".scm" files use scheme-mode.
1985-05-22 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* tags.el (visit-tag-table):
If tags file has changed since last read in, offer to read it again.
1985-05-22 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* nrnews.el
Foo. A distinct lack of communication here.
Fairly radical surgery --- many bug fixes and clarifications,
quite different from rnews.el Sigh
1985-05-22 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* view.el
Add new flavor of help. ?, h still give list of
commands. C-h understands m, c, k options. Make
help commands use pop up window with scroll on space.
* loaddefs.el
Minor change for documentation of view-file and
view-buffer because C-h does not describe mode now.
1985-05-22 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rnews.el:
news-go-to-news-group: don't get confusing error if arg is nil.
Print messages describing change of groups here, not in callers.
Accept interactive string arg.
news-next-group: combine with news-move-to-group.
Change so arg N means go forward N groups.
Don't print any messages.
news-previous-group: call news-next-group.
Don't print any messages.
news-move-to-message: simplify by using news-previous-group.
Also, most messages were spurious.
news-goto-news-group: it had duplicate definitions.
Flushed both of them; use news-go-to-news-group instead.
various: standardized ellipses in messages.
Use error rather than message where appropriate.
1985-05-21 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* mlsupport.el:
Fix assorted typos where variable "bufname" was changed to "name"
* view.el
Make M-<, M-> work. Fix documentation strings to work with the
combination of lisp quoting and substitute-command-keys quoting.
* electric-buffer-list.el
Call Buffer-menu-execute before selecting. (Why doesn't standard
buffer-menu-mode do this?) Flush "x", "1" and "2" commands
* buff-menu.el:
Call bury-buffer after selecting new buffer.
Make things work when pop-up-windows is nil.
1985-05-21 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* view.el:
Flush skip commands since they don't make much sense. Make searches,
goto-line's center display at point found with dot at beginning of
line. Use mark ring and provide mark manipulation commands. C-l
is recenter. Improve documentation.
1985-05-21 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* loadup.el:
Copy DOCSTR rather than renaming it.
* sendmail.el (mail-yank-original):
If have numeric arg, don't delete header fields and don't indent.
1985-05-20 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rmail.el (rmail-get-new-mail):
Pass the proper arg to delete-file.
Don't always say "no new mail has arrived".
* sendmail.el (mail-send-and-exit):
Bury the *mail* buffer.
1985-05-19 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* view.el, dired.el
typos in viewing stuff
* simple.el, isearch.el
Added prompt argument to read-quoted-char; improved isearch
input echoing when reading quoted char.
* sendmail.el, loaddefs.el
added send-mail-function; initially sendmail-send-it
(also, mail-yank-ignored-headers had a typo)
* rmail.el (rmail-get-new-mail, convert-to-babyl-format, ...)
Remodularize inbox parsing. Add support(?) for mmdf inboxes.
Note that I can't seem to define definitive documentation of
what this format is; however the code installed seems to work
for all cases encountered
1985-05-19 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rmail.el (rmail-get-new-mail):
Pass the proper arg to delete-file.
* view.el:
Change to use recursive-edit for its command loop.
Define < and > commands.
* files.el (backup-buffer):
Get error if about to rename a directory.
1985-05-18 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* view.el, more-mode.el: Latter flushed in favor of former.
view-mode preserves concept of more-mode but uses
non-standard command loop so that viewed buffer is unchanged
on exit from mode.
* dired.el, loaddefs.el: Changed to use view.el. Change
documentation of dired-listing-switches to note importance of
excluding 'F' option.
1985-05-17 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* isearch.el:
Preserve window-start on exit from save-window-excursion
1985-05-16 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* rmail.el: correct read-only suppression in rmail-new-summary.
1985-05-16 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* loaddefs.el: Autoload more-mode, more-file, more-buffer.
* more-mode.el: New tourist mode for files.
* dired.el: Put more-file on v-iew in dired.
Returns to dired when user quits more.
1985-05-16 Richard Mlynarik (mly@mit-prep)
* simple.el: Make <help> i run info.
* sundry changes to go with changes in src/fileio.c making
copy-file, rename-file, add-name take an optional third argument.
The only autoloaded system code this breaks is rmail ---
a condition-case for wrong-number-of-arguments kludge was installed
there in two places to make things work until everybody is running
an emacs which takes the extra arg (marked "** KLUDGE **".) Remember
to remove the kludge at that time!
Mods to files.el, loadup.el, rmail.el.
* added autoloading function electric-buffer-list.
* buff-menu.el: Make splitting screen between > 2 buffers work.
1985-05-16 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-prep)
* dired.el: Put dired-rename-file, dired-copy file-on keys. Make
them change buffer if appropriate. Put dired-mark-backup-files,
dired-mark-temp-files on keys. Eliminate possibility of looping
at last line in dired-repeat-over-filenames.
1985-05-15 K. Shane Hartman (shane@mit-grape-nehi)
* dired.el: Fix bug in dired-noselect which caused dired of / to
get buffer name of /default/directory// with contents of /.
1985-05-13 Richard M. Stallman (rms@mit-prep)
* isearch.el: Add crl's slow isearch code, plus changes:
