hi, is there a way to merge two org files in org-mode, without phisically joining the files ?

@haravali -i'm no expert, but the following makes reference to an 'smerge' command http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Comparing-Files.html

Hi there. I'm using auctex and wish to benefit from outline minor mode. I see it enabled but cannot see any benefit. How is it supposed to work ?

bremner
ngirard: go to LaTex -> Show/Hide
ngirard
Hi bremner. LaTeX->Show/Hide shows me a menu, all entries of which beeing disabled except the first one "fold". I infer that it is related to folding, which appear as a distinct section in auctex's manual than outline
am i missing something or
is outlining a distinct feature ?
bremner
ngirard: you are in a room with one door. What do you do?
ngirard
bremner: i get your point, I did activate the "fold" entry, but isn't it related to folding or outlining ?
bremner
ngirard: so what do you want? Hiding subsections?
ngirard: then I guess see section 6.3 of the auctex manual
ngirard
bremner: i just want to learn about the advantage I could get of auctex so-called outlining features. Reading the manual was not sufficient for me to get a clue
perhaps i should read about emacs standard outline minor mode
I expected something like org-mode's outlining abilities, which i'm more used to
bremner
yeah, lots more there. the only difference with auctex is what defines a a "heading line"
ngirard
as i said, the outline minor mode beeing enabled in my latex buffers, i don't notice anything special with the \section and \subsection lines
so I must be missing something

thanks for the link, it was fun jordanb !

Recall that the only thing spock ever wrote was a program to caclulate PI to an infinite digit.

I love C++ as C3P0 though.
totally useless.
I thought the point of rudybot was to give quotes when you're _not_ aronud
a sort of jordanb-simulator
jordanb
Maybe.

c3po? isn't that the silly robot from star wars?
r4yner
lisp programmers don't really think that of python programmers do they? kindergarten?
damd
oh, you're discussing something like that. yay me.
jordanb
Most lisptertarians hare a huge bug up their ass about python for some reason.
technomancy
r4yner: "look, mom! we made lambdas at school today." / "that's nice, dear. maybe when you're older we'll get you set up with some that can be more than one line."
jordanb
Yeah, the one line lambda thing is what they trick out on, or the fact that python doesn't find much use for closures.
r4yner
hehe
damd
please hand me the link... :(
jordanb
You can have arbitrary lines in your lambda by use of the '\' character.

who's that guy at C#?

More accurate to say that lambdas must be one *statement*

oh, office space?

jordanb: the fact that there are statements as a distinct concept from expressions is pretty hilarious too though

i never "got" that upgrayedd thing... i saw that on the coding horror blog.
what's the inside joke that i'm not in on?

You have to watch the movie
damd
i see. but why is forth the unabomber?

The forth guy is living in a shack in montana now.
He's blogign about it. It's hilariosu.

magcius
Is there a way to make ido not delete an entire directory on a backspace?
damd
DuClare: that's what i keep hearing, but does that make arc automatically silly?
technomancy
bashing arc just isn't fun; you end up just feeling sorry for it
DuClare
damd, Obviously it doesn't matter!
damd
magcius: do you know about hitting C-f when in ido?
technomancy
DuClare: srsly; PG-13 is sooooo much better
magcius
damd, I like ido for everything else though
The things that bug me about ido: history isn't working right, and the backspace
damd
magcius: what i mean is, e.g. hit "C-x C-f" to get into ido-find-file... then hit C-f and it will "fall back" to the normal behavior
jlf
it's very popular at weddings
magcius
damd, I know.

i compose a mail message in emacs/mew with a mime attachment that's about 162M
when i try to send it, it fails, and returns nil
no information in Mew Debug or Messages

Probably your mail server rejects it
chrisb
wouldn't mew debug buffer have the dialog with the smtp server?

jordanb
Dunno, I don't use mew.
160MB is usually above what smtp servers are set to allow though.

jordanb
Lots of people want emacs to not show you the file you're trying to open when you start it.
technomancy
jordanb: it's so political trying to fix crap like that
that's basically the only reason the starter kit is so popular
well that and the fact that package.el isn't included in Emacs yet
jordanb
I"m also pretty sure that 0.00% of users don't use the toolbar, yet it's on by default too.
One negative too far there.
technomancy
it's there to counter claims that "Emacs isn't user-friendly"
