twb: ielm exited with code 127. (getenv "PATH") looks like my windows path and same with exec-path.
twb
127 = file not found
That doesn't make any sense to me, since ielm is part of elisp
But anyway, the paths are OK so that's fine
plumbus
when i M-x ielm : C:/Cygwin64/usr/libexec/emacs/24.5/x86_64-unknown-cygwin/hexl.exe: error while loading shared libraries: ?: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
twb
Your emacs is buggered
try restarting it

hello fellas
twb
hewwow
b4284
is there a region mode for `occur'
eg. occur-region
twb
b4284: do you know transient-mark-mode ?
b4284
i'm not familiar with it
         

twb
If you do C-SPC twice, it'll highlight the region
When that happens, M-x occur will search the region implicitly (instead of the whole file)
You can also turn on t-m-m all the time if you want
b4284
twb: it seems t-m-m only turn on and off the region
twb
Hm, I seem to misremember how occur works
b4284
okay, no problem, i'm just curious if occur support this behavior
twb
I mostly use M-x grep RET with git grep, or M-| grep, I think
The latter will operate on the region
b4284
it would be great for occur to list only, for example, symbols from the body of a certain function
twb
Granted
Suggest report as wishlist bug

Found a bug? Good. Tell the world about it by using M-x report-emacs-bug
b4284
twb, thanks, will do

how do I get doc-view.el to reload a file when it changes without prompting?
Currently I have to focus the buffer, hit g, confirm I want to reload.
I'd like to do none of those things.
b4284
twb, my friend told me a workaround, just so you know
first, by narrowing the view to the region with `narrow-to-region'
then do the occur
twb
hmm?
oh cool

auctex seems to want to put newlines after any $ in my text when I fill a paragraph. any idea how i can have that not happen (which was the the behaviour until recently)
Qudit314159
did this happen after an upgrade to some very recent version? It works fine here

til humans can store some vitamins in liver in quantity enough to last 5-10 years (!) (esp. cobalamin)... that's amazing :O
shadowdaemon
Nice.
I heard that the human body replaces each atom once every seven years or so.
Fuco: Maybe the body hangs onto important atoms?
Or molecules.
s/hangs/retains/
That would make sense.
There's clearly a replenishment process happening.
I'm currently reading about > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrot
And eating them raw. =)

Fuco: did you know some 200 kg guy just didn't eat anything for like 260 days, to lose weight? when you calculate the calories/kg in fat and how many calories one needs a day, the math works out :D
he took mineral and vitamin supplements probably. was under medical surveillance.
there's some paper detailing it
Firedancer
That sounds handy. Eat a lot at weekends when you have time and fast on weekdays

i am trying to use spaceemacs, followed the instlattion instructions and then when i open emacs nothing new happens, on the webpage it said spacemacs will install itself on startup
any ideas?
forcer
"Intermittent fasting" is a fad diet with some traction in certain minimalist/survivalist circles. No particular scientific evidence for or against it - works on the same calories in/calories out principle as everything else. Some people get really hungry, though, making it tricky.
zotherstupidguy: If you don't get answers here, try the spacemacs gitter channel - we have few spacemacs users here, I'm afraid.
         

zotherstupidguy
gitter gives me the creeps
there is a #spacemacs , thanks
scottj
zotherstupidguy: you probably cloned the repo to the wrong location
zotherstupidguy: or have a .emacs
zotherstupidguy
i have .emacs
should i delete .emacs?
scottj
zotherstupidguy: no, move it out of the way
forcer
If there's a .emacs, Emacs will not load the init.el.
zotherstupidguy
like mv .emacs .emacs.bak?
oh ok
scottj
zotherstupidguy: yes
zotherstupidguy
so init.el is the real .emacs right?
i read this somewher
, i am new to emacs, coming from vim
fsbot

zotherstupidguy
;; new to emacs, coming from vim :)
forcer
zotherstupidguy: Emacs loads the first file of ~/.emacs ~/.emacs.el ~/.emacs.d/init.el it finds
scottj
zotherstupidguy: protip: next time the one step "quick installation" section doesn't work for you, check the full installation section, which mentions this.
forcer
The current general trend is towards ~/.emacs.d/init.el as the general recommendation, but there is no official decree on what is "the right way".
scottj
zotherstupidguy
you guys are awesome, thanks forcer, thanks scottj, loving emacs :)
scottj
zotherstupidguy: it's about to get even better! (cause spacemacs is cool)
forcer
I hear there's a spacemacs version that does not require evil around now, too?
scottj
forcer: there's options to use emacs bindings instead of vim. I think it might still include/load evil.
zotherstupidguy
i like evil, i value moving round with hjkl
forcer
scottj: Well, at least something!

rudybot: Yo, rudybot, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish but it's actually gnu plus linux. Gnu *plus* linux
rudybot
kodein: can we perhaps leave this drama now? (yes, I'm trying to stfu you, I'mma leave work and all soon)
taylan

fsbot
(Action) takes kodein aside and explains in excruciating detail why GNU is the proper term for the OS commonly referred to as GNU/Linux.
taylan
gods I'm bored
kodein
well, you did force upon us a sermon on what GNU is

zotherstupidguy: i used vi for 9 years, then spent 2 years using the vi mode in emacs, then finally dropped the vi mode & went to plain emacs. it was a nice transition in the middle period.
Silex
zotherstupidguy: same story here, evil-mode is quite nice but after a while you discover that emacs can replace most of vim features nicely with a mix of multiple-cursors, smart-parens & expand-region
the replacement usually comes after the 148178979th time you have to fight evil-mode not playing nice and realised you cannot live without <emacs-feature-here>

Hey everyone. I'm trying to curl a http request using org-babel. The results are outputted in a weird, non-json format that a bit hard to read (e.g., not all the values are labelled with their keys).
Is there any way to ensure that I get the right format back?

This guy has very good insights taking into account that his most recent articles are from ten year ago.
zotherstupidguy
Silex any idea how to map vim's Exit of edit mode, to j+k keys?
moop
any evil junkies here? i have a question about magit and list-packages
and evil integration with them
Silex
zotherstupidguy: (key-chord-define-global "jk" 'evil-exit-whater-foobar)
use the key-chord package and find what function to bind jk to
