The switches given ;; are what I use... the code is probably not robust enough to handle ;; other switches. Let me know what you like to use and I'll make it ;; work. ;; This code is very beta. The code works fine for me, but it doesn't ;; handle all cases people might use. Please let me know if you'd ;; like it to do something else and I'll try to fix it. Patches are ;; also welcome. ;;; Code: (require 'compile) (require 'dired) (defconst glimpse-version (substring "$Revision: 1.2 $" 11 -2) "$Id: glimpse.el,v 1.2 1997/07/07 21:21:38 ats Exp $ Report bugs to: Alan Shutko <firstname.lastname@example.org>") (defvar glimpse-command "glimpse" "*The glimpse executable program") (defvar glimpse-switches "-n -i -y" "*Options to the glimpse command for M-x glimpse") (defvar glimpse-dired-switches "-lWyz" "*Switches passed to glimpse by `glimpse-dired' Must tell glimpse to output a list of matching files.")
