Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.0.50 (gnu/linux)
For the longest time (due to slow ttys just like the docstring
mentions), i set ‘split-window-keep-point’ to nil and was happy.
‘C-x 2’ and other internal usage of ‘split-window-vertically’
behaved more or less as expected.
Recently (1-2 years), i began to be annoyed at the behavior for
non-‘C-x 2’ usage of ‘split-window-vertically’. That is, Gnus or
‘M-x describe-variable’ or whatever would split the window, leaving
point in the upper window in a strange place (as warned by the
docstring). I could only guess that more functions are calling
‘split-window-vertically’ than before.
So, i wrote this in ~/.emacs and ask others for feedback on it:
(defun split-window-vertically-interactive (&optional size)
"Call `split-window-vertically' with SIZE, keeping point motionless.
This is achieved by let-binding `split-window-keep-point' to nil."
(let ((split-window-keep-point nil))
(setq split-window-keep-point t)
(global-set-key "\C-x2" 'split-window-vertically-interactive)
I suppose the inverse-polarity solution is to provide some kind of
‘split-window-vertically-keep-point’ for non-‘C-x 2’ calls, or
otherwise ensure that ‘split-window-keep-point’ is let-bound t for
such callers, everywhere.
