I need two "easy" features explained. First, if I want a
editor which acts as a pane in a larger frame, but can be
controled (buffer selection, interval setting, mode setting)
from a process outside the editor process, what should I use.
If you want a ZMACS window, you are out of luck dealing with it in another process.
If you just want an editor, i think STANDALONE-EDITOR-PANE is the flavor of choice.
Secondly, how can I interchange the contents of a node
without creating a new buffer. Right now, I'm using
(SET-WINDOW-INTERVAL *WINDOW* (CREATE-INTERVAL STRING))
but that seems to cause breakages...
The interval of a ZMACS window has to be a ZMACS interval, i.e. a buffer.
You don't have to have that buffer listed by C-X C-B, but a vanilla interval
is not enough.
