"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive
Member "xemacs-21.4.22/lisp/README" (18 Apr 1998, 2283 Bytes) of archive /linux/misc/xemacs-21.4.22.tar.gz:
As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.

1 The files in this directory contain source code for the XEmacs
2 facilities written in Emacs Lisp. *.el files are Elisp source, and
3 *.elc files are byte-compiled versions of the corresponding *.el
4 files. Byte-compiled files are architecture-independent.
6 #### Someone please update this.
8 bogus> When XEmacs starts up, it adds all subdirectories of the
9 bogus> site-lisp directory. The site-lisp directory normally exists
10 bogus> only in installation trees. For more information about the
11 bogus> site-lisp directory see the NEWS file.
13 bogus> After XEmacs adds all subdirectories of the site-lisp
14 bogus> directory, it adds all subdirectories of this directory to the
15 bogus> load-path (the list of directories to be searched when loading
16 bogus> files.) To speed up this process, this directory has been
17 bogus> rearranged to have very few files at the top-level, so that
18 bogus> emacs doesn't have to stat() several hundred files to find the
19 bogus> dozen or so which are actually subdirectories.
21 bogus> Directories whose names begin with "-" or "." are not added to
22 bogus> the default load-path.
24 The only files which remain at top-level are those which you might
25 reasonably want to alter when installing or customizing XEmacs at your
26 site. The files which may appear at top level are:
28 paths.el You may need to change the default pathnames here,
29 but probably not. This is loaded before XEmacs is
32 site-init.el To pre-load additional libraries into XEmacs and dump
33 them in the executable, load them from this file.
34 Read the instructions in this file for a description
35 of how to do this.
37 site-load.el This is like site-init.el, but if you want the
38 docstrings of your preloaded libraries to be kept in
39 the DOC file instead of in the executable, you should
40 load them from this file instead. To do this, you must
41 also cause them to be scanned when the DOC file is
42 generated by editing ../src/Makefile.in.in and
43 rerunning configure.
45 site-start.el This is loaded each time XEmacs starts up, before the
46 user's .emacs file.
48 default.el This is loaded each time XEmacs starts up, after the
49 user's .emacs file, unless .emacs sets the variable
50 inhibit-default-init to t.
52 version.el This contains the version information for XEmacs.
