I have an emacs daemon running (started using emacs --daemon) and want
to open files on the commandline with emacsclient. I would expect the
emacsclient command to open the file in an existing frame and return
immediately. However, emacsclient outputs the "Waiting for Emacs..."
message and does not return immediately. Is this intended


and what does this message mean if the file is opened in an existing

It means emacsclient is waiting for the server to indicate that
editing of the file is done.  This is for programs which invoke an
editor, let the user edit some text, then continue processing that
text after the user finishes editing it.

There is a --no-wait command line arg, whose help text is "Don't wait
for the server to return". To me it seems like this should not be used,
but maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, -n does what I want, but the help text was
not clear to me.

The --no-wait option is exactly what you want.  If you can explain
what was unclear about it in the help text, perhaps we could clarify

The man page clearly explains what emacsclient is doing (I didn't look at the man-page before). It would have helped me if the output of emacsclient -h were a bit more verbose, but I guess that its sparse output is intended.

This ticket can be closed.
