Re: Mark a position

Hi,

you should read the book

Writing GNU Emacs Extensions
Editor Customizations and Creations with Lisp
By Bob Glickstein
O'Reilly

The unscroll example (3rd chapter) should solve your problem. You can
scroll with C-v, M-v and other commands through the text and recover the
original cursor position with the function unscroll.

Here is the code from my .emacs.

;;; unscroll
(defvar  unscroll-point (make-marker)
  "Cursor position for next call to 'unscroll'.")

(defvar  unscroll-window-start (make-marker)
  "Window start for next call to 'unscroll'.")

(defvar unscroll-hscroll nil
  "Hscroll for next call to 'unscroll'.")

(defun unscroll-maybe-remember ()
  (if (not (get last-command 'unscrollable))
      (progn
 (set-marker unscroll-point (point))
 (set-marker unscroll-window-start (window-start))
 (setq unscroll-hscroll (window-hscroll)))))

(defadvice scroll-up (before remember-for-unscroll activate compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-down (before remember-for-unscroll activate compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-left (before remember-for-unscroll activate compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-right (before remember-for-unscroll activate compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-one-lines-ahead (before remember-for-unscroll activate
compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-one-lines-behind (before remember-for-unscroll
activate compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-n-lines-ahead (before remember-for-unscroll activate
compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice scroll-n-lines-behind (before remember-for-unscroll activate
compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice beginning-of-buffer (before remember-for-unscroll activate
compile)
  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(defadvice end-of-buffer (before remember-for-unscroll activate compile)

  "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
  (unscroll-maybe-remember))

(if running-under-xemacs
    (progn
      (defadvice scroll-up-command (before remember-for-unscroll
activate compile)
 "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
 (unscroll-maybe-remember))

      (defadvice scroll-down-command (before remember-for-unscroll
activate compile)
 "Remember where we started from, for 'unscroll'."
 (unscroll-maybe-remember))

      (put 'scroll-up-command 'unscrollable t)
      (put 'scroll-down-command 'unscrollable t)))

(put 'scroll-up 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-down 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-right 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-left 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-one-lines-ahead 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-one-lines-behind 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-n-lines-ahead 'unscrollable t)
(put 'scroll-n-lines-behind 'unscrollable t)
(put 'beginning-of-buffer 'unscrollable t)
(put 'end-of-buffer 'unscrollable t)

(defun unscroll ()
  "Revert to 'unscroll-point' and 'unscroll-window-start'."
  (interactive)
  (goto-char unscroll-point)
  (set-window-start nil unscroll-window-start)
  (set-window-hscroll nil unscroll-hscroll))

(global-set-key "\C-c\C-j" 'unscroll)

Have luck!
