documentation in zmacs
Date: Mon, 21 May 90 21:10:40 EDT
I have two problems with the way the documentation works in Zmacs, and
I wonder if any of you have solutions.
1) It used to be that if one called up a piece of documentation in
Zmacs (via M-sh-D), one got to see it, and it also got loaded into the
document examiner. I LIKED this. Nowadays, you just get to look at
it as it scrolls by, and if you miss something, tough luck. Not even
a bookmark is left behind. Has anyone `unfixed' this so it works the
way it used to?
It's still loaded into DocEx, but not in the default viewer (viewers are to
DocEx as buffers are to Zmacs). I think they're put in a viewer named
"Background". I don't remember precisely when this change occurred, but I
remember seeing it documented in release notes.
2) Has anyone written a command to look up the common-lisp-style
documentation strings, and display them in a nicely formatted way,
while in the editor? I know, I know, I should do this myself, it
would be easy enough, but if someone already has...
I think that m-sh-A will display documentation strings in the typeout
window. I'm not sure if this is what you mean by "a nicely formatted way."
