bug#21047: 25.0.50; Make M-x woman respect display-buffer-alist

From: Kaushal
Subject: bug#21047: 25.0.50; Make M-x woman respect display-buffer-alist
Date: Mon, 13 Jul 2015 15:06:10 +0000


This was posted on the emacs-devel list a while back and it was suggested that this be posted on bug-gnu-emacs.

The aim of this patch is that opening M-x woman buffers be controlled using display-buffer-alist. Using display-buffer function instead of switch-to-buffer function will allow the user to control how they want to open the WoMan buffers (same window, other window, popup, etc)

The patch is below:

I guess your message got lost here, better make a bug report, and
better include a patch than the whole changed code.

I think it would be an improvement.

The very same applies to eww:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun eww-setup-buffer ()
  (switch-to-buffer (get-buffer-create "*eww*")) ; <-----
  (let ((inhibit-read-only t))
  (unless (eq major-mode 'eww-mode)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Maybe there are more cases.  It's surely worth discussing.
