bug#15177: 24.3.50; codepoint 35 chars displayed as binary matrix after some file names
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 02:03:11 -0700 (PDT)
See attached screenshot from `emacs -Q' followed by M-x speedbar.
Some of the file names are followed by a codepoint 35 character (`#')
that is displayed as a blue matrix of tiny 0s and 1s. Other file names
have no such character after them. (Not shown: read-only files have
instead a yellow padlock icon following the file name.)
`C-u C-x =' on that character gives this info:
position: 21143 of 44023 (48%), column: 18
character: # (displayed as #) (codepoint 35, #o43, #x23)
preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV))
code point in charset: 0x23
syntax: . which means: punctuation
category: .:Base, a:ASCII, l:Latin, r:Roman
to input: type "C-x 8 RET HEX-CODEPOINT" or "C-x 8 RET NAME"
buffer code: #x23
file code: #x23 (encoded by coding system iso-latin-1-dos)
display: by this font (glyph code)
Character code properties: customize what to show
name: NUMBER SIGN
general-category: Po (Punctuation, Other)
decomposition: (35) ('#')
There are text properties here:
However, where the text copied above shows "# (displayed as #)", what
I actually see in buffer *Help* is "# (displayed as )", where `'
is that blue binary matrix char display.
Seems like a bug of some kind. `C-h m' says that character `#' after
a file name indicates that the file has been compiled:
"Files with a `#' or `!' character after them are source files that
have an object file associated with them. The `!' indicates that the
files is out of date. You can control what source/object associations
exist through the variable `speedbar-obj-alist'."
So it seems that the bug is that the `#' char is displayed wrong (in
both speedbar and `C-u C-x =' output).
(A second comment about the speedbar display, in passing: Why does it
use a different face for mouseover from the default face for this
elsewhere, `highlight'? If a user has gone to the trouble of
customizing face `highlight', why would that not be used here also?)
