Are you aware of GNUS?
Sorry, never felt the need for autofill.
Yeah, I'm aware of it but, as I said, I'm an emacs newbie. I want to
have the editor navigation stuff down before I attempt it. Once I've
got more emacs experience, I'll take it for a test drive.
Plus, I've been using slrn for a couple years now, and I like it, see
no reason to change.
Try GNUS for awhile, and you'll see no reason for slrn!
I use XEmacs, but Emacs does works exactly the same. I run it
as an "edit server", invoked when I login and always available.
Then, for any given invocation of an editor, gnuclient is
executed. It starts instantly, and all of the buffers are
available, as well as it remembers things like search patterns
from one invocation to the next. Very nice...
Except that for GNUS, I don't want all those buffers mixed in
with the others, and I have a very different init file, with
different key bindings and so on. For those reasons, the XEmacs
process that runs GNUS is executed separately, and is started
xemacs -l ~/.gemacs -f gnus
That loads the init file ~/.gemacs and then executes GNUS.
I keep that process running all the time, and (using FVWM)
switch to the virutal desktop that it is on when I want to
read mail or Usenet.
