5. Emacs on the Playstation 2

Categories: EmacsTips#10 -- Permalink
Having problems with backspace and delete on Emacs on the PS/2 Linux kit? Here's what Eric says:
  <ericvids> sachac: I knew it, it's a program-trying-to-outsmart-its-user bug.
  <ericvids> sachac: I bound backspace to delete, but I shouldn't touch delete.
             They need to be *both* delete-char.  And the old emacs was trying
             to automagically decide whether to move backward or stay in place.
  <ericvids> sachac: On the other hand, maybe I should just keyboard-translate
             that.  After all I'm just trying to prevent emacs from modifying my
             bindings.

Allan T. Moster thinks that Bookpool is cool. Said shipping was free. Not sure if that applies to the Philippines.

3. Debugging Emacs hangs

Categories: EmacsTips#9 -- Permalink
<blockquote> Run emacs in gdb, preferably from the src directory where you compiled emacs:
   $ cd ~/emacs-build/src
   $ gdb ./emacs

[There's a special .gdbinit file in that directory that defines handy emacs debugging commands.]

When it hangs, hit C-z or something to exit to the debugger (you can't use C-c like usual when debugging emacs, because emacs' standard .gdbinit file changes gdb's SIGINT handling to make C-g work properly on ttys).

Then look at a C backtrace ("backtrace") and lisp backtrace ("xbacktrace") to see what's up.

For more fun, do the above from another emacs session using emacs' `M-x gdb' command. </blockquote>

Wonderful, thought-provoking story. I'm beginning to see why people like Murakami.
