<SynrG> i can hide/show subtrees using the menu, but the keys to do this are hopelessly complicated
<SynrG> i mean come on ... C-c @ C-s and C-c @ C-d ... who thinks up these? :)
<SynrG> do "real emacs users" just tolerate this, or do they typically come up with their own easier
    keymappings when they find they need frequent access to awkwardly keyed commands?

<elf> every success on #emacs is an excuse to drink beer

<bpt>  computing consists primarily of reading, writing, and editing

<elf> it should be noted that emacs users do sometimes behave like a
  bunch of nazis, esp. when we persecute the vi users;)

<LonEagle> is there a default key bound to compile?

<creepto> im still just learning emacs, lets say i have the screen split four
          ways two top, two bottom, how do i close one of the bottom windows
          so that it becomes two top, one bottom?
<Khmar> C-x 4 0 closes a window
<Khmar> and the buffer in it.
*** creepto (~alex@h24-85-144-215.vf.shawcable.net) has left channel #emacs: "Killed buffer"
<Khmar> wrong buffer :)
<Khmar> heh heh
<deego> :)

<creepto> yes that works

<fsbot> We should reimplement wheel using Python instead of elisp

<Lukhas> do we say Moldovar or Moldavian ? :)
<hynek> "Russian" *run&hide* ;)
%
<elf> so, for the record (meaning ,,emacschannelquotes ), when i ask "does
      anyone here use viagra? the answer is supposed to be "yes, if you want
      it to come up faster than emacs."
<elf> does anyone here use viagra?
<mkennedy> emacs is always up
<Riastradh> Emacs is bigger than vi!
<Riastradh> Emacs doesn't need no stinking viagra to _get_ big; it already _is_ big!

        penis being used as an offensive weapon in any previous movies
%
<mtndrew> inconnu: have you tried reading the manual?
<inconnu> mtndrew: yes I have. I have spent almost a week reading manuals but
       am getting nowhere. I can get it to read news and pick up and send mail
       but I need to build on that and thought I might have set it up wrongly
       to start with
<mtndrew> I've been using Gnus for a year and I'm still configuring it.
       That's part of the fun.  I'd say if you can get and send news and mail,
       then you've done all right for yourself for only a week.

<elf`> hi bpt

<utis> I am sometimes afraid that the amount and complexity of the Lisp code

       becomes sentient. :)

<elf> emacs is my wife and perl is my mistress
%
<kanaldrache> Coding is better than sex... :)
<kanaldrache> Think of Linus ... he's more sexy as he
    codes...
<kensanata> kanaldrache: your coding skills must be awesome,
    or your sex must be terrible.  ;)
<kensanata> kanaldrache: linus also said "i didn't have
     three children writing linux, you know."
%
<yesod> Perl. The only language that looks the same before and after RSA
        encryption.

<Laruiss> this is a great chan ;)
<kensanata> we're proud of it.
<Lukhas> indeed, we have the only 2 Danish people connected to
      internet here :)

<kensanata> this is the ERA, Emacsian Republican Army!  Join Now!

<Peaker> what is the DNA editing mode?
<kensanata> Peaker: when you get a female emacs and put it into
      DNA editing mode, you can create little tiny emacsen.

<fsbot> * lg_ was programmed in sperma-to-vagina language :)
<fsbot> <yesod> This is a nice language, I like programming  in it!
<yrk> STV in short
<TerryP> i'd like to read the standard
<lawrence> it's not something you read
<TerryP> i haven't quite understood the step from getting an idea to compiling in that language
<lawrence> :P
<TerryP> :)
<e1f`> that's b/c it's an interpreted language
<yrk> TerryP: it's very hardware dependant
<TerryP> yrk: so true
<TerryP> and it's absolutely not pointer-safe, unless you use a wrapper
<TerryP> :)
<yrk> it has some of the most beutiful GUIs I've ever seen
<TerryP> it's very strict about OOP, once you create something in it, it will inherit from you
<franl> It's also got support for spawning child processes.
<TerryP> it's hard/impossible to maintain though
<TerryP> franl: controlling the child-processes is hard though
<yrk> the deeper the indentation the better
* lawrence runs away
<TerryP> it's like python
<TerryP> it depends on indentation
<TerryP> also, it features what could be called a python.
<franl> Thank you.  I'm here all week.  Try the veal.
%
<Han> And I assume you know how to compile something ;)
<forcer> i do quite well ;)
<Han> that's what they all say.

<deego> what with my fixation on shortening my .emacs loading time..
<johnw> deego: have you seen pod.el?
<deego> i wrote it :)
<johnw> aha!

<delYsid> Whenever I have to deal with perl modules, I need some really good smoke first.
<delYsid> otherwise, I cant stand it.
