Robert Widhopf-Fenk's: ELisp Corner
A word on IDs. I used CVS for tracking my changes to source file. CVS
offers you to replace the keyword $Id$ with an identifier of the current
revision of the file. Then I used TLA, but it does not offer something like
keywords, and there is a reason
for this. Now I use BZR.
Still users need some version info when reporting bugs/feature requests, thus
I include the tree revision in distributed files! If the ID of a single
file does not match the current ID of my VM patch / tarball this does not mean
that the file is out dated, but that it had no changes since the listed
Archives and other Gzipped ones
Description of applications
For a good overview on non standard (X)Emacs extensions and links to them,
go to Stephen Eglens
ELL (Emacs Lisp List)
VM is now in my hands and has a new homepage at Savanne. The VM goodies on
this page will be migrated to VMs new home.
The Insidious Big Brother
Database (BBDB) sits in the background and ``notices''
things about messages you read within VM, Gnus, ... It is THE
address book for an (X)Emacs nerd. I participated in development
for quite some while.
Links to interesting VM extensions from other people
bbdb-rf.el (1.26) With some addons of mine for
BBDB which are not in its bit-directory. This might be unstable
or related to specific things which I think are not useful
for may others.
- bbdb-print-latex.tgz for the generation
of little address booklets from your BBDB records.
- vm-pcrisis (the last version from the
original author was 0.85b)
Personality Crisis for VM by Rob Hodges (who has vanished) is a
package which allows
you to automatically change headers and body of a message depending
on the headers of the replied/forwarded/composed message. If you
are using multiple email accounts and want to change the From or
other headers automatically then have a look at this package!
The author and the original site of the of the package
disappeared, so I am providing a local copy of the last version I
could grab. Currently I maintain vm-pcrisis.el as part of my VM
branch and it has receives several bugfixes and improvements.
- Noah S. Friedman
has written various nice addons for VM, e.g. spookmime.el which
generates "spooky" mime separators, vcard.el & vm-vcard.el displays
vcards and a lot of other cool stuff for (X)Emacs.
- Ulf Jasper
has written the best font-lock package for VM I have seen.
This adds several new functions which can be used as a
replacement for the find-file-* functions. With these
functions you can specify a globing pattern
(e.g. *.el) or a regexp instead of a single name
and all the matching files will be loaded for editing.
This is a minor mode which provides spell correction
similar to MS-Word or flyspell.el. I deprecate it in
favor of flyspell.el.
This is a major mode for editing AutoHotKey scripts.
It offer syntax highlighting, completion of commands and
variables, automatic code indention and electric braces.
