2 questions: indent and xbiff

Post by Sandy Pittendrig » Wed, 08 Jul 1998 04:00:00



1) xbiff
     If my mail spool is on another machine (a file server, where my NFS

     mounted home directory resides) how can I get xbiff to work?
     How does xbiff work?  Keep a file with last mail spool time stamp?
      Maybe xbiff could use and rsh wrapper?

2)  GNU indent-1.9.1 gets totally confused by C++ code.
       Perhaps there is a .indent.pro  directive to fix this.
       Specifically,  the double colons at class-method-function
       declarations get munged from  :: to :    :
        Is there a way to fix this?

make an alias like:
alias xrbiff rsh <machine name> -n "xbiff <arguments>" &

i dont think it needs to keep a file. it would just do periodic stats and
rememeber the mtime every time.

|make an alias like:
|alias xrbiff rsh <machine name> -n "xbiff <arguments>" &

Not forgetting that one of those arguments should be -display and the X
server at your local box.

indent 1.9.1 does not support C++. you should download indent 2.0 alpha
from www.Arceneaux.com (?!) ...
