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: !#/bin/bash cd /home/tim/prj/cgi/test emacs newlisp/testfile.lsp rebol/testfile.r python/ 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 running asynchronously. 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. HTH tim
