  • Some Ansi-Term Improvement | Irreal
    He begins with a bit of Elisp that kills the ansi term buffer when the shell exits This isn t a huge thing but it is annoying to have the now useless buffer hanging around so this is a worthwhile change At the other end he arranges for ansi term to automatically use his preferred shell That way he doesn t have to specify it every time he starts an ansi term Zwahr noticed that when he pasted something into the buffer with Ctrl y the shell didn t see it Again a bit of Elisp fixed that Finally there were a couple of display issues one involving the solarized color theme that required tweaking I prefer eshell for most of my shell work and just call up iterm2 when I need to do something that eshell doesn t handle well but if you like the ansi term solution you should definitely give Zwahr s post a read You may want to grab some of his fixes This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Bookmark the permalink Org 8 3 4 Lisp in Production Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs Commands Archives April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December
