bug#11224: 23.2; `comint-history-isearch' with value 'dwim causes error

From: Wesley Dawson
Subject: bug#11224: 23.2; `comint-history-isearch' with value 'dwim causes error when comint process is finished
Date: Wed, 11 Apr 2012 02:49:06 -0700

Setting `comint-history-isearch' to 'dwim causes comint buffers where
the process has exited to give the following error:

(comint-after-pmark-p: Wrong type argument: processp, nil)

isearch works as expected after the message, however. Following is a fix
to `comint-after-pmark-p', which makes it simply return nil if the
process has already ended:

(defun comint-after-pmark-p ()
  "Return t if point is after the process output marker.
Return nil if the process has ended."
  (let* ((process (get-buffer-process (current-buffer)))
         (pmark (and process (process-mark process))))
    (and pmark (<= (marker-position pmark) (point)))))

It seems it is currently impossible to recover the input history once
the process exits, so I believe this is the sensible thing to do. In
addition, `async-shell-command' is often used to execute arbitrary
long-running processes that don't require input but that you don't want
to hang emacs, and so an input history won't even be available in those

Recipe for emacs -Q:

(setq comint-history-isearch 'dwim)
M-x async-shell-command : RET
C-x o
C-s (comint-after-pmark-p: Wrong type argument: processp, nil)
