carbonite!
rodyaj
hi. Could someone tell me why when using plink as the ssh tramp method in Windows it keeps asking for the password even when I know it is right?
on emacs 23.1
quotemstr
Is there a pastebin for PDFs?
greenlantern
hi,what's the command to delete an empty line?
jlf
,df flush-lines
fsbot
flush-lines is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `replace.el'.
(flush-lines REGEXP &optional RSTART REND INTERACTIVE)
Delete lines containing matches for REGEXP.
When called from Lisp (and usually when called interactively as
well, see below), applies to the part of the buffer after point. ..[Type ,more]

greenlantern: C-a C-k?
moljac024
hey everyone
any nethack players here?
         

jordanb
There used to be.
They all got eaten by grues.
lvh
moljac024: vegan atheist demigod reporting for duty :-)
moljac024
i see that you can play nethack in emacs (surprise surprise)
lvh
(tried foodless and failed :-()
jlf
(Action) .oO("atheist demigod"?)
moljac024
i'm not that much of a nethack player but i always found the game interesting
lvh
jlf: it wouldn't make sense if you haven't played/finished nethack :-)
moljac024
just never spent much time with it
jordanb
People finish nethack?
greenlantern
quotemstr: works
QtPlatypus
I compleated it once.
lvh
jlf: do you mind being spoiled?
killown
sorry, i am a emacs newbie and i would like know how edit a file here.. it says: buffer is read only and i can't type anything
jordanb
I thought it was like emacs where people kept shoveling on crap until it became mathematically impossible to win.
moljac024
lvh: so do you play nethack in emacs? :P
lvh
jordanb: nethack is fairly easy to win for experienced players.
jlf
lvh: i'm not actually interested in nethack
lvh
moljac024: sometimes.
jordanb: mrivan had a consistent 23 game win streak.
quotemstr
(Action) has never completed Nethack.
moljac024
lvh: nethack.el ?
is there any other?
         

killown
can anyone help me?
lvh
moljac024: I just use ansi-term but I play online too
moljac024: also: M-x telnet

killown: C-x C-q
lvh
hm
what happens if i do that to my erc window
moljac024
does anyone use any other program here? or do you all live inside emacs? :P
jlf
other...program???
fsbot
Highly likely.
lvh
moljac024: I don't use ezbl, I use google chrome/ffox
jordanb
Emacs is actually sh*tty for anything other than editing.
technomancy
jordanb: good thing all computing tasks basically boil down to editing
moljac024: I use Conkeror and Emacs exclusively
lvh
basically I use emacs and a browser, that's it
moljac024
whats good for note taking
org-mode?
fsbot
I think org-mode is Org-mode is a mode for keeping notes, maintaining ToDo lists, and doing project planning with a fast and effective plain-text system .. + other entries
greenlantern
how to set mark, C-x <space> , is it ?
,mark
fsbot
1 ..(integer)
moljac024
greenlantern: C-space
or in emacs talk - C-SPC
right?
greenlantern
(defun foo() 5) (foo) ,where is the error ? C-x C-e ,does nothing
jordanb
//initialize hover questions
init_hover_questions();
greenlantern
got error
jordanb
Seriously
quotemstr
greenlantern: You have mismatched parens.
Err, nevermind.
greenlantern
quotemstr: where is the error ?
http://xahlee.org/elisp/Defining-Functions.html
quotemstr
There is no error there.
greenlantern
quotemstr: ^
jordanb

greenlantern
quotemstr: what output should i get?
rudybot
I'll call YOU back during buisness hours.
sword
greenlantern: no output
greenlantern
http://xahlee.org/elisp/Defining-Functions.html , here i see 5
sword: ^
quotemstr
,(progn (defun foo () 5) (foo))
fsbot
5 ..(integer)
sword
greenlantern: that is an artifact, really
it returns 5
which emacs prints for you
jlf
greenlantern: you might want eval-print-last-sexp, bound to C-j in *scratch* for example
jordanb
Xah Lee.
greenlantern
sword: gnu emacs , 22.3.1
jordanb
(Action) looks at greenlantern suspiciously
technomancy
jordanb: he's got a lot of google juice for some reason
jordanb
Everyone linking to his penis photos.
technomancy
probably at least tangentially related to the fact that he doesn't use the term "fu*kface" as much on his web site as he did on IRC
jordanb
His website has more penis photos though.
quotemstr
"google juice" is a phrase I never expected to hear.
Woo. Applied to Palm.
ams
jlf: why not just use ielm or something lame?
jordanb
quotemstr: You're trying to get hired as someone who boxes up the aeon chairs?
technomancy
jordanb: those things fetch a pretty penny on ebay
quotemstr
jordanb: I have a slightly more optimistic view.
jordanb: I might be able to take some home with me. :)
jordanb: They're still hiring software people, actually.
jordanb
Whatever for?

jlf
let's create products that delight customers
let's work with a smart team that's driven by excellence!
jordanb
Clearly palm's customers are not sufficiently delighted.
technomancy
Let's synergize.
sword
Let's buzzword bingo.
quotemstr
Let's hype like it's iPhone release day.
ams
aahh..
not only did i agree with fledermaus today, you people are scaring me.
quotemstr
Oh god, ams is here.
(Action) now applies to Red Hat.
jordanb
You could sit at the table in the lunch room with Drepper.
I can't imagine anyone else sitting with him.
greenlantern
(progn (defun foo() 5) (foo)) , works but (defun foo() 5) (foo) doesn't work, why?
sword
Haha
greenlantern
probably mark is not set correctly
quotemstr
jordanb: I get the feeling Drepper is the kind of guy who eats in his cube --- which is surrounded by an electrified barbed-wire fence.
greenlantern
i did , C-<space>
quotemstr
greenlantern: Because C-x C-e only evaluates the last form.

Hi, anyone getting problems when trying to get latest version of emacs from savannah via bzr? Error here: http://pastebin.com/9wQe3wUN
quotemstr
What the heck _is_ JBoss?
lvh
quotemstr: you dont wanna know
quotemstr: it's a java thing!
quotemstr
I'm not opposed to a Java thing.
sword
greenlantern: because the first one is a single sexp whereas the second is two
greenlantern
C-<space> for the firs character and going to the last character, did C-x C-e ,
sword
,dk C-x C-e
fsbot
eval-last-sexp is an interactive compiled Lisp function in
`lisp-mode.el'.
It is bound to C-x C-e.
(eval-last-sexp EVAL-LAST-SEXP-ARG-INTERNAL)
Evaluate sexp before point; print value in minibuffer.
Interactively, with prefix argument, print output into current buffer. ..[Type ,more]
ams
quotemstr: it is a application server thingie..
sword
greenlantern: You want eval-region
greenlantern: You are using the wrong command
ams
rather, eval-buffer.
jordanb
rudybot: quote
rudybot
I'll encode you.
greenlantern
sword: this time i did , C-<space> going to last M-x eval-region , nothing happens
jordanb
quotemstr: JBoss is an Enterprise Java <mumble> <mumble>
It's very expensive.
And therefore very important.
quotemstr
Sure, but what does it _do_?
I'm a little confused on that point.
Sketch
Enterprise stuff.
jordanb
Yeah, general Enterprising.
ams
quotemstr: it is a application server thingie.
killown
anyone help me? if i split a window and do C-c C-c it kill my split.
greenlantern
Mark set
jordanb
If you need some Enterprise, JBoss is for you.
quotemstr
ams: You can say anything which can accept a network connection is an "application server".
technomancy
perhaps it's for recalibrating the warp cores.
r4yner
killown: what's your question?
technomancy
or stabilizing the tachyon output
,excuse
fsbot
The Secondary Energy Differential Sustainer is interfering with the Internal Partial Collection Interface.
ams
quotemstr: there you go.
greenlantern
sword: quotemstr ?
killown
r4yner, i need see the python compiler result using Cc Cc and it not working
r4yner
killown: C-c C-c's behavior will change depending on what mode you're in
Sketch
quotemstr: irc isn't really an application server
r4yner
killown: do you want to look at the contents of another buffer, or what?
quotemstr
Sketch: Says who?
killown
yes
jordanb
print >> sys.stderr, exc_traceback
r4yner
killown: C-x C-b will do that in all modes
jordanb
WUT?
quotemstr
Sketch: I can play Dunnit via fsbot.
r4yner
killown: er, C-x b i mean
Sketch
good point
sword
greenlantern: what?
killown
ok let me try
r4yner
killown: it'll ask you to type the name of your target buffer, but note it features tab completion
greenlantern
sword: i did , C-<space> and M-x eval-region , nothing happens
sword: (defun foo() 5) (foo)
(defun foo() 5)
(foo)
sword
greenlantern: try evaluating them one at a time.
ams
greenlantern: i suggest you read the tutorial, then the emacs manual, and finally the emacs lisp intro.
greenlantern
sword: do you mean , C-x C-e for each line
sword
greenlantern: I mean C-x C-e for each s-expression
killown
r4yner, Cc Cc compile my python code and it kill the buffer
quotemstr
You can also use ,,df eval-region
fsbot
eval-region is an interactive built-in function in `lread.c'.
(eval-region START END &optional PRINTFLAG READ-FUNCTION)
Execute the region as Lisp code.
When called from programs, expects two arguments,
giving starting and ending indices in the current buffer
of the text to be executed. ..[Type ,more]
quotemstr
(Action) applies to an Antarctic research base for the hell of it.
sword
quotemstr: we appear to be having a problem regarding the region
greenlantern
sword: yes, that works
killown
i just need two buffers one for code and another for show compile results
sword
greenlantern: so, you are having a problem defining a region
greenlantern
sword: may be
r4yner
killown: do you have a buffer called *Python* ?
