C-h v directory-abbrev-alist RETfor information on an elegant way to shorten your paths. Suppose you’d like long paths like
/opt/some/software/project/source/file.cto be shortened to
/proj/source/file.c. The solution would be setting an appropriate symlink named
projin your root directory and adding the following to your InitFile: (setq directory-abbrev-alist ‘(”^/opt/some/software/project" . "/proj”))
Concerning directory-abbrev-alist: If there is a symbolic link in the file system, why do we need this translation table, should it not work even without it?
Concerning directory-abbrev-alist: Can it somehow be used on Windows XP (no symlinks)?
Some of these packages, including lslisp, do not seem to be in xemacs 21.4.17, at least. those of us trying to find a way to do
--time-style = iso in xemacs find ourselves stymied by the way the dired code handles switches. is xemacs on the way out, at least for dired? – gambarimasu
