So you want to allow everyone to erase all your files?

Hi Andreas, Lennart,

"anyone", I would hope :).  Perhaps I was mistaken.  I thought
these incantations were constrained to setting buffer local
variable values.  If they can execute arbitrary emacs lisp code,
then it sounds very Microsoft-like.  ``Let it be easy for
content providers and painful to secure.''  If emacs has really
become "that powerful" then there's nothing for it but to go
back to old versions or back to vi.  I disliked vi in 1974,
despite "ed" being the only competition.

C.F. ``See "(info ...)" and "Ch-v v enable-local-variables'', I
am afraid that does not address this issue.  Extracted from .emacs:

  (setq enable-local-variables    't)
  (setq enable-recursive-minibuffers 't)
  (setq hack-local-variables      't)

Cheers - Bruce


Hi Bruce, can you please tell what you think is not explained? Did you read what the value t means for enable-local-variables?
