--- Begin Message --- Subject: emacsclient 22.3 race condition when launching emacs is required Date: Mon, 27 Apr 2009 13:03:44 -0400 I have emacs 22.3 installed on

$ uname -a
Linux void 2.6.9-67.0.1.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Nov 30 11:57:43 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

No emacs is running:

$ ps -e | grep emacs
$

If I invoke emacsclient at this point it does launch emacs but with an unnecessary message on stderr and does not return (as expected since --no-wait was not used):

$ echo $ALTERNATE_EDITOR
/sandbox/bin/emacs
$ emacsclient foo
emacsclient: connect: Connection refused

The newly launched emacs has a buffer open on foo but not as a server buffer.

emacsclient is waiting for a done message from emacs and emacs is acting as though it was launched by emacsclient using the --no-wait option.

Thanks.

On reflection, I think you're asking for a feature that Emacs 22
simply does not have, namely the ability for emacsclient to start the
emacs server if it is not running, then connect to it. It doesn't work
like that. If it finds the server not running, it simply starts a
stand-alone emacs like any other alternate editor, and does not try to
communicate with it on a client/server basis. There is no "race
condition".

As I say, it sounds like Emacs 23 will have the feature you want.
