bug in iso-acc.el


From: Laurent MUGNIER
Subject: bug in iso-acc.el
Date: Tue, 18 Jun 2002 17:13:12 +0200 (MET DST)

In GNU Emacs 20.6.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.7, X toolkit)
 of Thu Apr 13 2000 on vega
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr/gnu'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


Hello,


I (think I) found a bug in the definition of "french" within iso-languages,
and one in the documentation. I also have a suggestion for enhancement. 
The iso-acc.el I talk about is the one shipped with Emacs 21.2 (but my email
also applies to Emacs 20.6, which is the one I'm using now). 

(1) The list defining the combinations of "~" and other characters is
     (?~ (?< . ?\253) (?> . ?\273) (?C . ?\307) (?c . ?\347)
         (?,  . ?,))

    It should be
     (?~ (?< . ?\253) (?> . ?\273) (?C . ?\307) (?c . ?\347)
         (?\  . ?~))
    i.e. the last element should say that "~ " gives a "~" (same as in
     latin-1), not that "~," gives a comma! 


(2) Additionally, the comments at the beginning of the file say:
;;   '  (minute)    -> grave accent
;;   `  (backtick)  -> acute accent
    when it's actually the opposite (' -> acute, and ` -> grave accent).


(3) Last, it would be *very* useful to add the combinations ",e" -> é (e with
    acute accent) and ",E" -> É (E with acute accent). Indeed, the "'"
    pseudo-accent could then be disabled (if so desired) so that typing e.g.,
    "l'envie" does not result in the annoying "lénvie" ;-) 

    To do so, the list defining the combinations of "," and other characters
    should be: 
     (?,  (?E . ?\311) (?C . ?\307) (?e . ?\351) (?c . ?\347) (?, . ?,))))



Thanks in advance for considering these changes, and thanks a lot for Emacs.
Best regards,


        Laurent Mugnier.
