I am not familar with inodes. However, I do remember that the dir size
decreases by 16MB when I moved the files out. I played around like that
and the disk space seemed real. Anyway, why do we need three
executables two of which seem to do nothing?

Powerbook, 10.2.2, a few weeks old.

I don't have a space crunch yet. I just want to get in to the habit of
not accumulating things that aren't needed. In the release 21.3.50,
Emacs.app is approx 120MB.

It is "unhighlighted" in the mac style. You can't open the panel.

Don't know how to give the -rv option when I am clicking on an icon in
the dock, which is how I'd mostly run this program. In most mac-style
apps I would expect to set such things in a Preferences panel. Anyway,
I'll try the customize-face way that you  suggested.

I'm not sure but you might be thinking of the fact that many editors
move by screen lines instead of logical lines. That really helps when
you have lines that are wrapping 3 or 4 times. However having code
wrap on words instead of in the middle of them doesn't make THAT much
of a difference.

I don't know if emacs has a mode for moving by screen lines instead of
logical lines. But if it doesn't it shouldn't be too hard to
implement.

I am deeply appreciative of all the feedback and truly helpful answers.
Thank you all very much indeed. I have decided, actually made a short
list, as follows:

1. One spends a lot of time with the editor, so it is one personal
attachment I have and that happens to be Emacs. I am keeping the
terminal Emacs (21.1) that came with my OSX distribution, but will try
the GUI one too. I have a few questions; I posted those under a
different subject "Emacs 21.3.50 on Mac OSX 10.2.2".

2. For the time being at least I wont get X11 but will try to work with
the native aqua/quartz/display-pdf.

3. I'll get Gerben Wierda's teTeX. I'll probably use command line
pdftex but I'll also try TeXShop. In addition, I will try previe-latex,
auctex, reftex combo recoomended by a few posters.

4. I have noted the recommendations for diagrams but I'm going to
revisit this issue later, after I have gotten the basic setup going.

This is also for viewing various text files edited by Mac/Windows
programs that like to think that paragraphs and not lines are
terminated by end of line characters.  Really, there is no fundamental
reason why Emacs shouldn't support editing like this.

That'd be way too cool for Visual C++...  ;-)

preview-latex will not run with a terminal Emacs.  And it may well be
that it may work just with X11: I do not know to what degree image
support would by now be included in the Cocoa version.

I have a problem with a function as value for the help-echo property (I'm not
sure if this is a bug or if i have not understood the help-echo stuff right?!)

Please do the following test (I'm using NTEmacs 21.2. with Windows XP):

1. Start a vanilla Emacs with "emacs -q -no-site-file"

2. Evaluate the following small code in the *scratch* buffer:

(defun klaus-insert-line (text)
  (let ((p (point)))
    (insert text)
    (put-text-property p (+ p (length text)) 'mouse-face 'highlight)
    (put-text-property p (+ p (length text)) 'help-echo
                       'klaus-help-echo-fn)
    (insert "\n")))

(defun klaus-help-echo-fn (win obj pos)
  (message "Position: %d" pos))

(defun klaus-test ()
  (interactive)
  (klaus-insert-line "This is a test line")
  (klaus-insert-line "here is another one")
  (klaus-insert-line "Line Line Line")
  (klaus-insert-line "I think this is enough")
  (klaus-insert-line "last line"))

3. Call M-x klaus-test RET at the end of the scratch buffer. Then you will
have the following text inserted:

This is a test line
here is another one
Line Line Line
I think this is enough
last line


Now please begin to move the mouse over the newly inserted text, e.g. over the
'T' in the first line "This is a test line". OK, then in the minibuffer
"Position: 765" is displayed (or whatever position the 'T' has). Fine!

But now continue moving the mouse down slowly over the first chars in every
line, ie. you move from the 'T' to the 'h', stop, then over the 'L', stop, the
'I', stop and at least over the 'l' of the last line. If i understand the
help-echo stuff right, after every move the displayed position should be
change, because after every move another position is under the mouse pointer.

But what happens is: If you begin moving over the 'T' then a the position of
the 'T' is displayed, but this position is never changes after the following
moves, ie. the function 'klaus-help-echo-fn' is only called once!

Even more: After every move from a buffer-position which has *NO* help-echo
property to a position which *HAS* a help-property all is working fine (ie.
the correct position of the character under the mouse is displayed) but after
a move from a position which *has* *already* a help-echo property to a new
position which has a help-property too nothing happens, means the
help-echo-property function is *NOT* called.

==> Seems the help-echo function 'klaus-help-echo-fn' is only called if moving
the mouse from a "no-help-echo"-property to a position with a
help-echo-property but not if moving from one help-echo-property-position to
another one? is this a bug or a feature? ;-)

Another aspect: If i use a string instead a function for the help-property all
is working fine: Please change the function 'klaus-insert-line' as follows:

(defun klaus-insert-line (text)
  (let ((p (point)))
    (insert text)
    (put-text-property p (+ p (length text)) 'mouse-face 'highlight)
    (put-text-property p (+ p (length text)) 'help-echo
                       text)
    (insert "\n")))

Now the help-echo property has the text of the line as value instead of a
function. Now performing the same test as described above all is working fine,
i.e. regardless from where i move always the right text is displayed in the
minibuffer!

Sorry for this long text but i do not know how to describe my problem in a
shorter way...

Any thoughts of the Gurus?

BTW: If i remember right, the stuff with a function as value for the
help-property has already worked well, and i suppose this was with Emacs 21.1.
Now I'm using 21.2.! Is is possible that concerning help-echo something has
changed??  But unfortuntelly i can not say at 100% if my suspicion is right!

Many thanks in advance!  Klaus

Hi,

I gave up trying to use the emacs builtin sgml-mode long ago...

I read the article from the IBM guy about psgml-mode (I think it can
still be found at
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/x-emacs/ ) and then there
was light... (downloaded the package from sourceforge.net). It's a bit
tricky to install/setup (need to create the SGML public catalog that
associates each XML document type with the right DTD) but when it's
done, it's really great for indentation, element syntax description,
DTD-constrained edition, etc. The only things I regret is the hiliting
in psgml seems to be a little poorer than with sgml-mode.

Now, I don't know about xml-lite, it may provide a good compromise of
complexity/features... Where can we get it ? (I'm using win32 emacs
21.1.1). Maybe more recent versions of Emacs have an improved version of
sgml-mode ?
