Software :: Using EMacs Abbrev-Mode To Replace Symbols?

Jul 7, 2011

I want to use Emacs abbrev-mode to be able to replace certain programming symbols with their Unicode equivalents as I type. So, for starters, I added this to my abbrev_defs file:

(define-abbrev-table 'haskell-mode-abbrev-table '(
("->" "→" nil 0) ))

But it simply doesn't work when I am in abbrev-mode. No error message, the auto-abbreviation simply doesn't take place. If I adjust the above:

(define-abbrev-table 'haskell-mode-abbrev-table '(
("arrow" "→" nil 0) ))

Then auto-abbreviation works with the word "arrow". Why can't it auto-replace the symbol?

I am an emacs user, and I noticed that on my new machine (running F15, 64bit) flyspell-mode will not work in tex mode.

I get errors that look something like this:

Spell-checking inequality-model.tex using hunspell with default dictionary...
Spell-checking region using hunspell with default dictionary...done

General :: Emacs - Search And Replace Regex In Multiple Buffers?

Apr 7, 2009

I'm fairly comfortable with emacs but I can't seem to find how to do this. I deal with a lot of text files and find myself performing a lot of regular expression replacements to correct the formatting of the text -- or to extract certain tidbits of data from large ugly-looking files.

I know how to perform a regular expression replacement in one buffer at a time. But how do you perform a regular expression search and replace across all open buffers? I have found a method to perform a regex search and replace across a directory by marking files but I need to do it in the open buffers.

Applications :: Install Php Mode On Emacs?

Dec 23, 2010

I am just starting out with ubuntu.

I downloaded emacs, and wanted to use php-mode, so i downloaded something called php-mode. I would have posted a link, but this forum restricts me from doing that.

Inside are a bunch of files, and no readme. I tried to ask google how to install this, but found nothing that made sense to me (i am still a n00b).

By issuing the 'nm' command on shared library (internally using one static library), the functions exposed by static library is also being listed, Which allows to use internal functions which is of course not intended.

OpenSUSE :: Using Emacs Shell-bash-mode-hook?

Feb 26, 2010

I want to show line numbers automatically in bash scripts (a habit of being a programmer) and when I load an emacs lisp file it works from the command below but the following command that sets up the same thing for bash scripts doesn't work. I played around with this for quite some time and couldn't find anything that would make work.This is the first time I have tried to customize emacs so it could easily be something ignorant on my part.

;; Load additional packages
(load-file "~/.elisp/whitespace.el")

Fedora :: Commenting Out Block Of Code In EMacs In Python Mode

Jan 13, 2010

I usually develop python code with emacs, emacs being in python code. On my desktop a version is installed and/or configured that way, so I easily can choose a region in the code and simply click on a menu option to comment out this block of code (i.e. at the begin of each line in the selected code two '##' are put). That is very convenient.

However, on my Laptop, running F12 and emacs 23.1.1, this menu option is missing! I searched within google and found the hint that by pressing 'C-c #' I also can comment out a selected region. But on my emacs it says: 'C-c # is undefined'. Am I missing something? Anyone any idea how to fix/install/update/solve this problem, so I can easily choose a couple of python lines and comment them out?

General :: Getting Emacs Recognizing .tex As Latex And Even Running Latex-mode?

Jul 5, 2010

I am a semi-noob on this and I have problems getting my emacs recognizing .tex as latex and even running latex-mode. Usually when you run latex-mode (M-x : latex-mode) emacs should switch to latex-mode, but nothing happens in my case. The menu bar still show the TeX options, highlighting remains the same etc.

I am running emacs 23.1.1 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.10.4), this is on a university system so I don't know much about it.

General :: What Are The Symbols In VDT's Output

Feb 17, 2011

I've been messing with a curses-based disk check tool in Linux called VDT (visual disk test). It puts out a nice little chart on the screen as it's going, but I have no idea what each unit of output on the chart means. I've read the man page several times, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of the visual output.

For instance, right now I have a chart that looks like this during a read test. What do the o's and the Z mean?

Programming :: GDB (No Debugging Symbols Found)

Oct 19, 2010

I'm running gdb across a network using gdb server. I've got it up and running. However I can't see any source or variables for my code (in ddd /gdb). At start up gdb says (no debugging symbols found). I've got a g in my make file,
CPFLAGS = -Wall -Os -g -pedantic

I've tried loading symbols in using "symbol-file testarm", this sort of works in that I can view symbols but not names, e.g. if I ask dd to show x y and z, rather than
x = 10
y = 20
x = 30

It says:

Also ddd does not show anything in the source window, is there a way I can get it to show this? I think it's because I've started ddd with ddd arm-linux-gdb, as I'm calling a crosscompiler gdb. So can I tell ddd to point to the correct folders? What commands I need to set in gdb/ddd to view variable names (it's hard to keep track when it bunches them all together) and how to view my source code.

Programming :: Parser Symbols With Different Types

Nov 27, 2010

I decided to try making a programming language again after my last unsuccessful attempt, so now I figured how to write a good AST and it works great when the nodes are hard-coded into a test program. But to make a language out of it, I need a parser to build the tree according to an input file. I ran into a problem here:

YACC input file:
#include "nodes/allnodes.h"
#include "Node.h"
int vars[26];

%right ASSIGN
%left NE
%% .....

As you might see, each nonterminal creates a Node* object and uses it as its value. The problem is that the literal tokens, however, don't return Node*'s and I don't know what to do. I would like to be able to convert literal tokens to nodes in the Lex file (which would avoid the problem), but the problem is with the assignment operator, which takes a Node* for the right-hand side and a variable name (not a Variable Node, because they just evaluate the the variable's value and you can't change the variable with them) for the left hand side.

Programming :: Difference Between Various Symbols Of Kernel

Aug 22, 2010

I was going through some exercise given in my school. I have read the C book but I am not able to understand some part. That is static variable. What exactly is a static variable and what does it do? I saw in Linux Kernel Programming external and exported are also some thing. I am not getting the difference between static,EXPORT_SYMBOL,external variable types. If I make a kernel module then how will I make sure that my variable is visible to the kernel. Is this what it is all talking about? I have checked this page [URL].

Slackware :: 13.1 - MF / MP Symbols Small And Unreadable

Jun 4, 2010

When I used slackware 13.0 I installed wine 1.1.40 and then I installed an old program, PowerTAB. The font for the mf, mp, and other symbols was very small and unreadable. To solve this I put sylfaen.ttf in /home/darksaurian/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts and this magically fixed the problem. I don't know why or how I figured it out. But now with Slack 13.1 I do the exact same thing, same version of wine, and the font trick does nothing. The mf, mp symbols remain unchanged and unreadable.

OpenSUSE :: Oprofile And Debug Symbols For Glibc ?

Mar 2, 2010

How do I get debug symbols for glibc? I'm using oprofile when profiling applications. Unfortunately, the default glibc version that comes with SUSE 11.1 has the debug symbols stripped-out. That means that all libc functions get aggregated into one big blob under "" and you can't tell whether you spend most of the time in memory allocation, syslog or lock related routines.

So, I've tried a myriad of different ways of getting the symbols. From trying to build glibc myself to hunting for dozens of different rpms on this site and on the Internet. So far - no positive results.

My sytem: OpenSUSE 11.1, x86-64.

Is there a step I'm missing to get gdb to load the symbols or something?
