Like for example? Except for 'do-ing it, I can't think of anything ATM
that I would like to do with an entire buffer. But I can imagine others
would, like running it through colorize, and send it to the contrib
library. Or to update an embedded script.
However, you don't have to take the whole buffer. For example, you could
'do the marked region. You could run 'help on the word under the pointer.
Or you could... er, something else.
Btw, I updated the file slightly now. The indentation fix is included of
course, but font-lock also works better now. Previously it only recognized
every other keyword of the same type, for example in "reduce reduce" only
one of the the words were colored. This happened because it required each
word to be pre- and proceeded with a space or tab, otherwise it would for
example match "skip" in "select/skip", or "read" in "my-read_function",
because "- _ /" etc wasn't considered as word seperators. It was a "damned
if I don't - damned if I do" situation, but I fixed it by changing the
syntax table. So... Anyway, it works ok now. :-) Still located at:
