I do most of my programming work in linux with vim, however I have
a little script that launches emacs with the primary interpreted programming
languages that I use:
The script looks like this:
emacs newlisp/testfile.lsp rebol/testfile.r python/testfile.py
So I have emacs started with a scratch file for each programming
language and I have written emacs modes for both newlisp and rebol
and of course, there is the stock emacs python mode.
And from that setup, I can do snippet testing with the interpreter
I've never been happy with the way the rebol binary command line
works out of the box in linux, this way I can take advantage of the
emacs cursor movement and the other features that comes with the
parent 'comint mode'. It doesn't look like readline is implemented
by rebol on linux.
If anybody is interested, I can make my rebol mode available. It
will be probably take a few tries to sort out the dependencies, I
don't use emacs that much any more .... just for snippet testing.
