Are there're and they're legit contractions?
wasamasa
Demosthenex: like, `ix`?
legumbre
offby1: np. In the latest magit version you can use C-x C-s in any popup to save the current actions/switches/etc as that popup's defaults. (Those defaults are written to custom-file.)
blaenk
I remember I read about something in the book that shows you like a list of function names and stuff so you can jump to it, anyone know what that was? trying to find it in the book
wasamasa
wba
ugh
what context specifically?
Demosthenex
wasamasa: that's a nice find, but i was actually on a remote host from my emacs installation... so i was looking for strictly cli (sh/perl/python)
blaenk
don't remember to be honest. it just said that you would run that command and it would show you a list of that kind of thing, like declarations of things so you can jump to them
will try to find it
wasamasa
Demosthenex: it is strictly cli...
blaenk
imenu it was

Man, Sourceforge has had a pretty long outage.
hodapp
I didn't notice.
offby1
probably a net benefit
hodapp

Demosthenex
wasamasa: but in elisp i have to have emacs ;]
wasamasa

cvandusen
Running magit-status, I get: byte-code: Symbol's function definition is void: ert-set-test

does anyone know what helm-mini is exactly? I described it but I'm not sure I get it
says preconfigured lightweight version (buffer -> recentf)
how can I search bindings? like I want to search to see what bindings I have that are for helm
finster
blaenk: it is a helm that combines sources of open buffers plus recent files. that's about it
blaenk
I think helm has this actually
scottj
blaenk: like C-x b but includes recent files also
blaenk
finster: ahh okay thanks
oo that's better then
recent files towards the top I imagine/hope, that's what I liked about ctrlp in vim
Demosthenex
wasamasa: its ok, like i said, i'm using emacs locally, it was a remote server i needed ot pastebin files. i'll just remote edit them :P
scottj
blaenk: buffers first, recent files (not opened) next. maybe configurable.
blaenk
ahh
oh yeah I confused buffers with files. so recent files could be a file I opened previously but for which a buffer does not exist
scottj
blaenk: yep
blaenk: helm-descbinds can show bindings.
         

blaenk
ahh thanks, I kept trying to apropos for helm and bindings
but just binds ok
ohh it's a separate package, ok
scottj
it's not part of helm.
it's pretty much the only reason I use helm, it is awesome.
blaenk
yeah seriously lol
WorldsEndless
Any gnus users here?
scottj
WorldsEndless: ,anyone
dangit ,,anyone
fsbot
Just ask your question. It's the best way to know if anyone can help.
scottj
WorldsEndless: there's also #gnus
WorldsEndless
I just transferred my setup to a new machine, and Gnus mail all transferred fine; but I'm missing my 24+ RSS subscriptions
Where are the RSS subscriptions kept?
hmm... using /whois #gnus told me no such channel
rrix
in ~/News/nnrss and ~/.newsrc*
WorldsEndless
rrix: Thanks!
scottj
WorldsEndless: you use /msg alist list gnus
blaenk
what's the difference between C-h c and C-h k, they seem the same
scottj
s/alist/alis/
blaenk: c is what commands have this name, k is what commands have this keybinding.
blaenk
ohhh
scottj
blaenk: or in other words, describe this command vs describe this key.
blaenk
sorry I don't follow :/ cause when I do C-h c, I can press a keybinding
and it'll tell me what it's bound to or does
scottj
blaenk: sorry I changed mind and didn't remember
blaenk
hahahahaha, no worries
I guess as long as both work
scottj
blaenk: C-h k C-h c vs C-h k C-h k
blaenk
ok will try that
ohhh yeah c-h c is more brief then
thanks scottj

with vim I always used ag, but it seems like in emacs you guys just use the integrated search stuff right?
like I was reading how it'll even show syntax highlighting for the lines that match and you can even edit the search results and commit the changes, that's crazy
Zackio
blaenk: wgrep
miskatonic
what pray tell is ag?
blaenk
do you know ack?
Zackio
blaenk: wgrep also has a ag backend
:)p
blaenk
ooo
Zackio
*:)
blaenk
miskatonic: it's like ack implemented in C
Zackio
blaenk: saying that, i should *really* use it more
blaenk
hey but wgrep supports that right, the syntax highlighted line matches and in-line editing
miskatonic
never heard about ack
blaenk
oh I guess it's like a programmer-oriented grep
it'll for example obey .gitignore, and makes it easy to filter for specific languages, etc
Zackio
blaenk: wgrep means "writable grep"
blaenk
ahh
Zackio
so it does the latter, not sure about syntax highlighting
blaenk
so it's not a command right, you mean you'd use something like M-x grep or those
Zackio
blaenk: it's a command
miskatonic
there is a debian package called ag-grep. Is that the same thing?
Zackio
sec
blaenk
is it a separate package? I tried to apropos for it and nothing came up
Zackio
miskatonic: yes
blaenk
miskatonic: yeah you should try it, it's pretty neat
Zackio
blaenk: seperate package, on MELPA
blaenk
thanks Zackio I'll check it out
yeah I was mixing things up. I think it's occur that lets you edit in line
