Paren Highlighting

Post by Rafael Amer Ramo » Sat, 27 May 2000 04:00:00



Hi.

I have installed XEmacs-21.1.10 and I use it basically for editing
*documents.

With the 20.4 version I can set the option menu

Options->Paren Highlighting->Expression

but with the 21.1.10 version, all the options in

Options->Paren Highlighting

appear disabled.

Does anybody knows how can I set Paren Highlighting with XEmacs-21.1.10?

Thanks.

FWIW, I am running 21.1.10 (on a Linux system) and I can see and set the
Paren Highlighting options.  Does the problem still occur if you start
xemacs as follows:

xemacs -vanilla

?  If not, then the problem is probably arising from something in your
.emacs file.

Try adding these two lines to your .emacs

(setq blink-matching-paren t)
(custom-set-variables '(paren-mode (quote paren) nil (paren)))

1. Paren highlight question

Hi,

I know when I used to use gnu Emacs, there was an option that you can
turn on so that if the matching paren is out of your screen but
exists, the who region between the parentheses is highlit.  (normally,
I only highlight the parentheses themselves)

Mic-paren has something similar, except it quotes the text where the
matching parentheses is found, but it would be nice if the region was
highlit as well, but only of course if the matching parenthesis is out
of the view area.

Has this been implemented in XEmacs?

Thanks.
