Does anyone have a hack that automatically inserts a mode line in a newly
created LISP mode buffer? If not, is there an undocumented feature of
ZMACS that does the same?
m-X Update Attribute List?
No -- I'm more interested in an 1automatic0 method for writing the
attribute list whenever a new, LISP-mode buffer is created. The "Update
Attribute List" command just uses the current defaults for the mode
line. However, I want to use a different mode line (or set of lines),
;;; -*- Mode: LISP; Syntax: Common-Lisp; Package: USER; Base 10; VSP: 0 -*-
;;; This file was created on <date> by <pretty user name> on <machine>
;;; <License info>
I don't think that the Update Attribute List command will automatically
insert the VSP option; it certainly won't generate a multi-line header.
I'd also like this header to be generated automatically whenever I
create a new buffer; the less keystrokes, the better.
Is there something like a "newly-generated-file-buffer-hook"? Such a hook
could solve this problem.
