I would think about bury-buffer, though it would give us only one-way
switching. And if only it was possible to skip all those *temporary*
buffers... Anyway, that might do for the first time.

Thanks! That is really cool, I didn't know about clicking on the buffer name
to roate... Now to find which command it is running....

In Emacs 21.1 and later this can be done by clicking on the buffer name in
the mode line, left click to go to the previous buffer, right click to go to
the next buffer.  If he just has to have it assigned to a key that can be
done in his .emacs. Since the function is assigned to a mouse click all that
would need to be done to assign it to a key is find out which function
switches buffers and put the statement in his .emacs to assign the functions
to keys.

Subject: rotating between buffers

 

Hello,

I am trying to convince a co-worker to use emacs. He will do it if there is
a key stroke that will allow him to rotate between active buffers, like
alt-tab in windows allows you to cycle through windows.

I am totally down with ctrl-x b to go to a named buffer, and ctrl-x ctrl-b
to get the buffer list, and even control -left click to get a buffer menu
pop-up... but It has to be a keystroke according to him.. 

So is there any such command built in to emacs to do this, or does anyone
have something I can add on?

 

Thanks in advance!
